In order to show the significance of peaking mountains and the adventure that partakes every time I endure one of those hikes, I have arranged images that correlate directly with the thoughts that run through my head around that part of the hike. The mountains each hold pieces of me and my past that I’ve conquered. The photographs are a mix of picturesque and the less noticed sides of nature; the beauty in the eye of the beholder.
The added insight comes into play with the rollercoaster of emotions that entail throughout the process of the hike. The images are shot digitally with a DSLR and are arranged in order of when they were taken on which hikes were done first and which mountains were peaked first. The arrangement of a slideshow acts as a map tracking my past whereabouts through the mountains I’ve peaked within the past year. The project is a tracking of the progression of myself with the comparison to the progression in elevation and conquering of mountains.
