Eiger / Mordwand (2017)
The Eiger is a 3,967-metre mountain of the Bernese Alps in Switzerland. The most notable feature of the Eiger is its 1,800-metre-high north face of rock and ice named Eiger-Nordwand or just Nordwand, which is the biggest north face in the Alps. It was first climbed in summer 1938 by Andreas Heckmair, Ludwig Vörg, Heinrich Harrer and Fritz Kasparek, a German–Austrian group. The group originally consisted of two independent teams, who then cooperated on the more difficult later pitches and finished the climb roped together as a single group of four. Since 1935 many climbers have died attempting the north face, earning it the German nickname Mordwand or "murderous wall", a play on the face's German name Nordwand. This series visualizes passion and achievement through teamwork. The work consists of 35 Intaglio prints with each a different individual red imprint.
