I discovered Tim's work in Lech and was impressed and excited about his unique ability to portray skiing in his own very distinctive way. - Willy Bogner, filmmaker and fashion designer

My name is Tim Hall, I am a London based photographer. I have been a fine art landscape photographer for 25 years shooting for books, magazines and exhibitions. www.timhallphotography.com

For the past eight years I have been on a photographic journey across the Alps. I have travelled by all modes of transport between Chamonix and Cortina capturing the beautiful landscapes as part homage to the 18th century artists who took the Grand Tour and part quest to discover what has made these famous mountains and resorts so popular over the past 100 years. 

My amazing journey has taken me across the seasons through Chamonix , Gstaad, Verbier, Zermatt, Andermatt, Lech, Zurs, St Anton, St Moritz, Garmisch, Kitzbuehel and Cortina . Along the way I have shot some of the most famous mountains in Europe including Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, the Eiger, Zugspitze and the mighty Dolomites.  

 

 

Over 150 colour and b/w photographs will be reproduced in a beautiful large format 200 page hardcover book which is being designed now by Hyperkit and will be published by Te Neues in September . The book will contain words by Sophie Benge and philosophical quotes about mountains by famous writers such as Robert Macfarlane, John Ruskin and John Muir.

Every book that you buy will be signed by me and will include every backers name printed in all the books distributed around the world

Every t-shirt, postcard, book and print that you purchase will go towards the production of a public touring exhibition. 

Your pledges will enable me to print, design and frame a set of thirty top quality large format works. The funds will also go towards the rental of event space, PR and marketing, printed material and launch parties at the high profile venues in London, Switzerland and Austria. These will be announced as the campaign progresses.

If we surpass the financial target I will create a stretch goal which will open up the option of more exhibition venues and I will also be able to produce a professionally edited film of the works that can be watched online.

 "Tim Hall’s photographs of the Arlberg mountain range in Austria are powerful evocations of the Burkean Sublime. The works project the feeling of the fragility and ephemerality of human existence, opposed to the eternal mountain peaks: remote, massive, white, abstract. Artists and writers from Turner and Mary Shelley to DH Lawrence and Peter Doig have been inspired by the Alps; and this awareness of the alien and magnificent power of the natural world is what is made brilliantly clear in Hall’s incredibly powerful works" - Ivor Braka, Art dealer

Risks and challenges

The book is being published and I personally oversee all the printing of limited edition prints so all of your purchases will be honoured once the initial target is reached.

The book is now at the design stage and under review - there are elements that might change over the next month the cover design being one of them

The venues for all the exhibits will be confirmed once the funding is in . If funding is successful then a list of exhibition venues and dates will be released as they are confirmed and you can choose which one or ones you would like to attend
