This is a project I’ve had in the back of my head for quite some time. Having seen other filmmakers experimenting with natural pigments, I knew there was room for another visually interesting experiment.
In April 2015, I gathered a few riders and experienced photographers to perform this conceptual clip, in which skiers release black ochres while taking off, leaving ephemeral trails behind them as they fly.
Directed in collaboration with Jules Guarneri, this video premiered on Nowness on March 21st 2016
