Xippas Geneva is pleased to present Among Giants, the first exhibition in Switzerland of Matt Bohli. On this occasion, the artist will unveil a series of images captured in Iceland. His photographs, neither retouched nor cropped, transcribe as closely as possible the intrinsic force of the wilderness he has confronted.
A trip near the Great Smoky Mountains between North Carolina and Tennessee (USA) gave birth to his first photographic series. A few months later, in 2017, he traveled to Iceland for the first time. Last year, the photographer, eager for nature, road trips and hikes, returns to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula in western Iceland. There, he captures the shadow and the light that follow one another on the landscapes he crosses. Leaving behind film, the digital camera he uses this time allows him to capture with more acuity the contrasts of this powerful nature. The artist presents here the images from this last trip.
Matt Bohli, American photographer and musician, was born in 1986 in Baltimore, Maryland (USA). After college in Boston he moved to Nashville, Tennessee where he pursued a career as a rock and then country music drummer. Since 2017 the artist has been developing a photographic work resulting from his numerous travels. He now lives and works in Paris.
