Les gendarmes de l'aiguille du plan II

About this photograph

With his passion for mountains, over the years, Jean François Hagenmuller has turned a sporting quest into a quest for beauty and light. Despite his camera being his constant companion on his numerous high altitude incursions, it was only over time that photography took predominance over the sporting side of mountaineering. The intensity of the light in these high places, the aesthetic of the shapes and materials has become an inexhaustible source of inspiration for him, allowing him to brilliantly combine sensations of balance, vertigo and motion: "Mont Blanc is my gem stone, its tawny granite with its powerful oranges and its delicately poised snow ridges, its blue glaciers and turbulent skies. It is a high altiitude island, one of the most spectacular in existence, where the natural elements play a game that?s sometimes violent, often subtle, caught between shadow and light, calm and storm, the horizontal and the vertical. "J-F. H.

The artist
HAGENMULLER JEAN FRANCOIS

Jean-François Hagenmuller was born in 1958 in Alsace. He has been a mountain guide and teacher at the École Nationale de Ski et d’Alpinisme in Chamonix since 1985. Fascinated by Mont-Blanc and the spectacle provided by nature, he turned to his second passion, photography, in order to transpose his impressions of the beauty and serenity of the landscape at high altitude into images. His photographs reflect his intimate and everyday relationship with the mountain, which he knows from its tiniest variations to its most beautiful views. He became a professional photographer in 1995 and contributes regularly to a number of specialist magazines. He also produces books, one of which, Lumières d’altitudes published by Éditions Glénat in 2004, won the World Mountain Image Book Award. Jean-François Hagenmuller is today considered one of the greatest contemporary photographers of the Alpine region.
