How to Build a Mountain
Graduation project
AKV| St. Joost
august 2019- october 2020


‘How to Build a Mountain’ is a visual research on how our perception of the mountain landscape has changed through innovations in photography, and with this, our affinity to the mountains itself. The research is on how humans changed the perception of the sublime mountain landscape through photography. Once was the mountain a sacred and sublime place, now mankind and the traces it has left behind are inerasable. How did it come to this? What role did photography play in this change?
What is in store for the future? Will mankind be able to recreate the mountain’s sublimity, or do the mountains reclaim what we took from them?
