This week Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates is pleased to host the exclusive debut of world-renown photographer Alexander Lindsay’s latest exhibition, All That Is Good Is Wild and Free. The private reception will be held on Thursday, August 1, 6:00 – 7:30 pm at the top of the Bridger Gondola in Teton Village.
A former foreign affairs correspondent and photo-journalist for the BBC, Lindsay’s work deals in minute detail and extraordinary scale. Specializing in remote destinations, his subjects span the globe and deal in raw honesty, clarity and beauty.
Lindsay’s latest collection, which will be publicly debuted for the first time at Thursday’s reception, was shot entirely in Grand Teton National Park in 2015. Influenced by Ansel Adam’s iconic images from the area, Lindsay spent months in the mountains capturing breathtaking photographs of the region’s rugged landscapes – the grandeur of which is reflected in the installations themselves (several span up to 20 feet).
On Thursday, Lindsay will share insight into the inspiration behind this latest collect and the secrets of his creative process, which includes shooting hundreds of photos simultaneously and then combining those to create the final shot.
“These images bear artistic witness to the fragility and rarity of our remaining untouched world,” Lindsay explains. And they do so in huge and savage focus.
For the past 35 years, Alexander has filmed some of the most extreme situations and environments on the planet. His career edged into documentary filmmaking after living with the Maasai tribe in Tanzania. He later turned his lens on Soviet-occupied Afghanistan, himself immersed on both sides of the conflict.
He later returned to the Middle East to document Operation: Dessert Storm and later the military engagements in Iraq in 2004. Lindsay followed that work with a five-year exploration of the Titianic, even entering the wrecked ship in a submersible.
Linking all his projects, Lindsay explains, is a quest to locate places and situations where “the imagination is rendered unnecessary.”
Lindsay’s work has been exhibited internationally, and his photographs are included in major private and corporate collections around the world. He also works on specific commissions for corporate and private clients.
A special thank you to Cindee George, sales associate with Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates, and our friends at Carney Logan Burke and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for helping to orchestrate this unique opportunity.
