The artist

Born in 1964 near Belfast, Ireland, Simon Burch was introduced to art by his father, a landscape painter. “We had impromptu days off school, regular visits from artist friends, the excitement of exhibition openings,” he says, “and I soon realized that I wanted to have a creative life.” After studying architecture and living for a few years as a painter, Simon Burch bought himself a camera. Photography was then to become his mode of artistic expression as well as his profession. As an assistant to a photographer in London, he began learning this new art form, before going on to set up his own studio in Dublin in 1994. He studied and obtained a Master of Fine Arts in photography. Over the past twenty-five years he has switched between professional work for companies and his own, more personal projects, such as his photos of Mont Blanc. His work has been recognised internationally; he has won two EPICA Awards and a silver medal at the Association of Photographers Awards in 2004. This recognition is not due to chance: “I have always believed that if you work hard and give your best,” he says, “then good things happen.”  ... See more See less

About the artwork

“It’s the vastness of mountains and the contrast with our human condition – such tiny things in the middle of the landscape – that attracts me,” explains Simon Burch about his photos taken in Chamonix in 2015 at the Glacier du Géant and the Col du Midi. This Irish photographer reveals the majesty of mountains by taking photos that look like paintings. He plays with the whiteness of snow and close-ups of rocks to create photographs in the same way a painting is created. The mountains become all the more striking.
