Sunday 29th December saw the opening evening of the ‘Mountain Sky’ photo exhibition at the Nanuq Gallery in Verbier, Switzerland. The exhibition includes exclusive 2m wide Verbier, Chamonix and Zermatt landscapes printed on stretch silicon fabric, 3m light boxes and 2m high vintage ski style images on photo Perspex. There is also the option to order more images exclusive to the Nanuq gallery.
The opening evening invited guests to enjoy a few glasses of wine in the stylish surroundings whilst browsing the images. I was very happy with the turn out to the exhibition of people that were both visiting Verbier and also of the support of the locals.
Verbier is an inspiring setting with the most dramatic backdrop and is host to a number of incredibly talented creatives. My favourite fellow Verbier photographers Marko Shapiro, Yves Garneau, Tero Repo and Seb Albert whom I have learned much from with regards to shooting in a mountain environment over the years were there to support. I am always impressed and happy at the positive and supportive vibe there is between all of the photographers in Verbier. I hope one days soon that we can all perhaps do an exhibition together…watch this space;-)
The Nanuq gallery is fairly new to the Verbier scene. It’s exclusive feel and friendly staff makes it a welcoming milieu to visit. The gallery is run by Canadian born Natalie Howe and situated within the lavish Solmai Spa. Natalie hopes to bring many well-known and reputable artists and photographers to the gallery and I am certain that it will become a highlight for visitors and locals alike.
Many thanks for giving me this opportunity Natalie and Nanuq. The 'Mountain Sky' exhibition will be running for the whole month. The gallery is open between 10:00 and 18:00. Please fee free to drop by and browse the art work on display. Thanks also to Rob Hill for the quality printing as usual.
Keep an eye out for my next exhibition that could cause a bit of a stir! ;-)
