The artist I Jérôme Tanon
A snowboard photographer since 2008, Jérôme is a well-known figure in the community and publishes his photos in magazines around the world. He quickly specialized in shooting on film, processing the photos himself and making prints in the darkroom. Jérôme has explored many areas of old school analog techniques and applied them to modern snowboard photography. Bromoils, cyanotypes, engravings on copper plates, lith printing take a large part in his work. In 2016, he created the documentary "The Eternal Beauty Of Snowboarding", and directed the adventure film "ZABARDAST" in 2018 where he also took iconic photographs. "Heroes - Women In Snowboarding" artshow & book is her latest project.
La Collection I Zabardast
A high altitude travel diary. This series of medium format photographs was taken during the famous 2018 freeride / mountaineering expedition in the Pakistani Karakoram. The quest for the first descent of the mighty north tower of Biacherahi (5880m) resulted in a successful film and photobook by Jérôme Tanon. Bringing back such photos taken on film with the heavy Pentax 6x7 camera was a feat in itself, which paid off when we observed the power of the landscapes and the faces of those who participated in this fully committed adventure.
