Extreme Perspectives, An Introduction to Mountain Photography by Alexandre Buisse – Ebook Review

Craft and Vision has once again published one of their well researched and beautifully photographed ebooks, this time by mountaneering photographer Alexandre Buisse.

I’ve always admired what many professional photographers will do to get the perfect image and Alexandre Buisse’s Extreme Perspectives, An Introduction to Mountain Photography presents us an inside glimpse into the world of a mountaineering photographer as well as the associated challenges. The majority of us will never be in a position to photograph any of the extreme climbs that Alexandre achieves but I found that much of the technique he discusses can be carried over into many additional forms of photography. Among them are the choices to be made about carrying equipment and the value of keeping the weight down and making the photography equipment accessible. For example, he mentions that inaccessible gear is rarely used, I tend to agree. Safety for oneself and others is widely discussed as well, always in the back or front of the mind as the photographer works around the challenges.

For me the most beautiful part of this book is the photographs. Gorgeous black and white images are mixed in with colourful rock faces. Most of the images have a human element, a small figure in a huge landscape, others showing the personal hardship involved in the sport. A few photographs look like parts of an alien computer generated landscape, something most of us will never experience except through the eyes of a gifted photographer.
