Metro is delighted to be supporting acclaimed landscape photographer Tim Hall in his latest exhibition “Above The Clouds” which opens in London this November. The exhibition is timed to coincide with the publication of his latest coffee table book of the same name.
The images on display, produced by Metro’s expert technicians, are a collection of vivid colour Giclée
and fibre based black & white
prints from the book along with lightboxes
produced using duratrans prints
which beautifully show the Arlberg Massif in Austria, home to the enchanting and historic villages of Lech and Zürs. They depict a wonderful photographic exploration of the fragile relationship between the natural alpine world and those that live and venture within it. The images have been complied in collaboration with eminent journalist and editor, Anna Tyzack.
Tim Hall comments: “As a photographer one continually prays for that magic moment when an image literally falls into the lens and that kept happening in Lech Zürs am Arlberg. The joy of the Arlberg is that the scenery is at the same time mild, immediate and immense. I feel a huge sense of excitement whenever I am here. Particularly intriguing is the aesthetic artistry of the mountains – the rock formations and chair lifts; the straggling lines of tiny skiers following their guides against the vastness of nature ¬ these are elements I incorporate into the structure of my compositions. I am a great believer that less visual information creates a more powerful impact.”
Tim Hall’s fascination with nature and diverse cultures has led him to travel extensively taking photos, from locations such as the British seaside, where he compiled two series, ‘Coast’ and ‘Storm’, to the streets of Jodhpur and the banks of the Ganges in India. Most recently he has visited the diverse communities of Morocco and Montenegro.
