David vs Goliath. Népal. Octobre 2019.
Face to face with the mythical Cholatse, the nostalgia of David Göttler thinking of his friend Ueli Steck. The best of us leave too soon. The one who lived his dreams to death.
A few themes from this artwork:
Mathis Dumas, 26, is a UFO. An Unidentified Fearless Object that gravitates in the universe of the mountains. Its trajectory is as singular as its profile is unique. Passion as a compass and sharing it as a cardinal point, he offers us unique works that only he has the power to capture.
“Photography is an art. But also a sport”.
Initially arriving in the Alps in order to pursue his dreams of a high level career in ice climbing, the mountains became a real playground for him.
“I’ve become a jack of all trades who can handle a lot of different sports”.
Sports performances that today allow him to accompany the best athletes and serve his gift as a passionate photographer at high altitude.
“I realized that every sport has its codes, and that if you don’t master them, it’s difficult to be sensitive to them and to grasp their beauty”. A mastery that allows him to access secret places, which he reveals to us through breathtaking perspectives.
His desire to share and not to live the mountains alone could sound like a façade speech. Except that one last aspect, certainly the one he is most proud of, confirms this simple and human ambition: he is also a high mountain guide with the Compagnie de Chamonix.
“The sportsman sees the mountain as a challenge, a performance. He only thinks about the hard things. The guide only thinks of the beautiful things…”.
The photograph is delivered in a tissue paper with white handling gloves and the certificate of authenticity. The artwork is shipped in a reinforced packaging that protects it. The combination of pigment inks and professional paper offers an exceptional result.
Its benefit : Pigment print on art paper is the most durable with a life span of over 100 years.
Simple, practical and trendy. The print is presented with its passepartout. The whole is assembled by hand with a cartfix support at the back and packed in a blister pack with the handling gloves and the certificate of authenticity. This finish is only available in standard sizes: 30x40cm, 40x50cm, 50x70cm and 70x100cm.
Its benefit : The passepartout has a neutral pH to help protect the photograph from condensation and thus increase its life span.
A classic of museums and art galleries. The art paper is laminated on a rigid 2mm Dibond support. This very resistant material is composed of a resin interposed between two thin sheets of aluminum. The no-reflection appearance and the very aesthetic aspect of this support particularly emphasize the works on art paper.
Its benefit : Dibond is a rot-proof, stainless and fully recyclable material.
Sober, elegant and modern. The photograph is laminated on cartfix and presented with its passepartout in an aluminium frame. The glass protects the artwork while increasing the brilliance of the blacks and colors. The passepartout has a neutral pH to protect the photograph by avoiding any condensation phenomenon. This is only available for S, M, L and XL formats to ensure the best rendering.
Its benefit : Aluminum is a durable material, requires no detergent to maintain and can be recycled indefinitely without losing its qualities.
A modern and refined finish that gives a lot of style to the artwork and gives an original depth effect. The print is first laminated on a 2mm thick Dibond support and then framed in a custom-made solid wood frame. This technique provides the space between the print and the inner edge of the frame. It is the star finish in galleries and among interior designers.
Its benefit : Laminated on a durable material, then framed in solid wood, the slightly recessed photograph is further protected.
