Well, this project was a fun but also a really tricky one to be honest. I do not really know when I decided to go for it and give it a try but it felt like its a never ending project.
I was competing in international competitions for quite some time, took part at the Olympics and ended up 4th at the X-Games, even though I never found absolute confidence while competing. There´s a story behind all the decisions I have made and especially the last one. Lots of people asked me why I stopped competing and yes, in this book you will find the answear.
A few years ago I started to get into photography and it just hit me, I could not stop and I am constantly looking forward to perfect my ideas. It was hard to realize this project without any fast DSLR cameras which are on the market today, but I am super proud of what we have achieved with my beloved and prefered camera the Leica M System. I had a clear vision and concept of how I wanted to have everything. I wanted to show what made me to the skier I am today and what kind of skiing I love the most. Its not winning, (maybe because I never experienced the feeling of winning a comp) but something else that keeps improving my skiing every season.
I will not tell you more since the book includes a text which describes me and if anyone is interested in buying a copy, just send me an E-MAIL (firstname.lastname@example.org). It´s 28 EUROs + shipping costs.
Huge thanks to my brother Fabio and Sam Strauss for all the help to finally hold this copy in my hands!
