Three Trips To Whitney

The tallest mountain in the lower 48 United States has been standing tall for millions of years. Mt Whitney – California. It may not seem to change much since formed by violent volcanic activity, but as I found out, Whitney Portal can dramatically alter its appearance. Each day, each year, and each century bring dramatic fluctuations that spotlight and obscure different vistas, peaks, valleys and intimate scenes. Sunrise, sunset, winter, summer and a 100 year fire presented totally unique experiences in one of Americas highest spaces. This was a single journey three years in the making. Captured in infrared and black and white, it is a study derived from a heightened curiosity to capture the same famous place across multiple visits and enjoy the different moods and the ever-changing personalities. A single wide open western U.S. adventure layered across three trips to Whitney.
