Adam Jeppesen

May 24, 2013 - Nina Hove

Last year I discovered the work of danish artist Adam Jeppesen. Seeing his work in front of me at an exhibition in Stockholm, I fell for the experience of the photographs and how I was drawn into the landscape. In the project called "The Flatlands Camp " he recorded his journey from the Arctic through North and South America to Antarctica. For 487 days he travelled in solitude and from this long journey a series of melancholic, evocative landscape pictures emerged. Jeppesen printed large photographs using a xerox copier, then pinning the many sheets in their frames, as a part of the picture. This gives the photographs another dimension and experience. I met Jeppesen in his atelier in Copenhagen one day he was preparing a series for the Paris Photo Fair 2012. It was inspiring to see the work in progress and later seeing the finished and framed work hanging in Grand Palais in Paris. The uploads here are from the Flatlands Camp series, but I would recommend to see his work in real life if you get the chance - to experience the real aura of it.
