Matterhorn

1,371 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
The Matterhorn, Valle d'Aosta, Italy

This VAST photo it’s part of a collection of high-resolution images shoot to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Matterhorn first ascent.

The project started in 2015 and it’s a tribute to the Matterhorn (Cervino in Italian), the mountain we friendly call “sua maestà” (his majesty).

On July 14, 1865, the mountain was climbed for the first time from the Swiss side, by a consortium led by the French Michel Croz and the English Edward Whymper and, a few days later, on July 17, by the Aosta Valley guide Jean-Antoine Carrel and by the Abbot Gorret on the Italian side, along the Cresta del Leone (Lion ridge).

The Matterhorn is famous for its iconic shape, an admirable pyramid in a landscape of exceptional beauty in any season and any light; the best is expressed at the end of summer when the green grassy cloaks meet the dusty white of a light snowfall.

It's cold, the air is pungent, the clouds run fast and form almost palpable architectures in the immense sky, and barely allow a glimpse of his majesty.
I am positioned on an uncomfortable viewpoint made of precarious rocks; in front of me I have the south face of the Matterhorn, where it meets the Lion ridge and the "Grandes Murailles".

I wait patiently for the right moment. I wait for everything to work perfectly: the light the wind and the clouds. I have the desire to tell something of my own, thanks to a unique scenario in the world. The golden light is perfect and makes the dark rock vibrant, in resonance with the atmosphere. The wind slows down for a few minutes and the clouds seem to be suspended in the sky, almost waiting for my shots.

This is the immortalized magic; a panoramic image made up of sixty shots taken in 4 minutes. A unique moment, lived intensely and unrepeatable.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.
