The Indian Himalaya (2006)
Building a mountain takes a long, long time. Gigantic movements of subterranean jigsaw-plates grind and push against one another to force the shell upward. Their constant plight is indifferent to time and set in a solitary mission. To exist is enough for a mountain.
At some point the mass peaks and the timeline crests. A slow, laborious effort begins and the mountain allows itself to be withered away.
So is the life of a mountain.
All photographs were taken throughout the Indian Himalaya in 2006. The images were made with assorted Kodak, Fuji and Ilford films.
