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.

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
