 Alexandre Deschaumes | The Quest for Inspiration


For years, Alexandre Deschaumes has stalked these extreme landscapes alone. In search of wild beauty, he walks and climbs, watching intently for the ideal angle. And in this rugged antipodean environment, his emotions mingle with the landscape. Whether in Patagonia tackling Mount Fitz Roy, or in Iceland on the most hostile terrain, he finds harmony, a natural enchantment. Filmed against the immensity, this intimate portrait takes us along little-known high-latitude paths, where the photographer confides his fears, his doubts and his quest to us.

What you will learn in this film…

Breathtaking landscapes • Extreme photographer • His quest for the ideal angle • A dreamlike approach to the landscape • The photographer in his element • His shooting technique • His extreme equipment • His search for light and contrast • Preparing his expeditions • Image composition • The colours of autumn • The enchantment of winter • The photographer's intimate discourse on his work

To keep the inspiration flowing, I have to feel that I’m innovating, exploring strange, new mixtures of colours. There has to be an element of the unfathomable, the mysterious.
