Le pas dans le vide

Le pas dans le vide

Client: Eiffage

The Compagnie du Mont-Blanc is doing a lot of work on the Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix. Eiffage asked me to follow the construction of a glass cube allowing visitors to experience heights.

Following such an unusual project from start to finish was a great opportunity to take some really stunning pictures.

I could also access some parts of the Aiguille du Midi that very few people have seen, like the Northern rocky outcrop full of antennas. One of the highest European television relays.

    VLM is securing the construction site. I feel at home with those guys. They are in love with heights and not afraid of them at all.

    Above the Mont-Blanc

    The sea of clouds below your feet really gives you the feeling you are flying. Using a fish-eye lens accentuates the feeling.

    Transparency

    This glass has been coated to be nearly as transparent as my camera lens. I must say I am impressed by the near invisibility of the cube.

    Reflections can be magical. I like the surfaces too. High precision technologies are at work here.

    The team

    For me, photography is about getting to know the work of others and respect it as much as they often respect mine. This group picture is my way to thank those guys.
