The Awe of It All
“I love the mountains. Their tortuous landscape and wild beauty inspire me every day. Their gift of silence and solitude reinvigorate my soul. In the many opportunities of play they offer I find endless joy. They have shaped who I’ve come to be.
Although I grew up in Barcelona, Spain, it was roaming the rugged, luminous Pyrenees Mountains that I spent a big chunk of my formative years. There, amongst the craggy ranges, crystalline lakes and ancient villages I sealed my fate to live in the mountains for the rest of my life.
My photography is not just a mere reflection of what my eyes see, but of the emotions my mind and body feel during the process of shooting the picture. I usually take the long road to get to places. I like to get deep into the mountains, be it running, biking, hiking, skiing, pedaling… I like to get down and dirty, feel cold, tired. It is in that state when I’m most open to feel the awe of it all.” – Xavier Fané
