Jamie Kripke knows what he’s doing with a camera. The American photographer spends his working life travelling the length and breadth of his country (sometimes even the length and breadth of the world) capturing images for an international client base. The man has a multitude of styles well and truly nailed, from colour saturated advertising shots through to more quiet, thoughtful compositions for editorial.
But sometimes it’s nice to take time out from the day job and do something a little different. With that in mind Jamie packed a bag for Europe, donned some skis and trekked his way over the Swiss Alps with little more than a folding medium format camera and some rolls of film for company. His intention was to slow things down, taking photos in a more relaxed fashion and give each one the time he feels it deserves. The resulting photos are – we’re sure you’ll agree – absolutely stunning, offering a glimpse of an environment that few get to see, and those that do move too fast to appreciate fully.
