Adam Jeppesen: Out of Camp
Exhibition, Foam, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Foam presents five recent series by the artist. These are the result of a solitary 487-day journey from the North Pole to Antarctica. Images of remote, rugged landscapes are suffused with a sense of tranquility, reflection, and contemplation. Jeppesen’s work is a search for spirituality, which is found in seclusion but which also addresses the materiality and transience of the photograph as an object. The journey has less visible traces and blemishes on the images. An important aspect of his work is his analogue and labour-intensive approach: the photographs are the product of physical challenge and experimental printing techniques.
