“64°north” is a solo exhibition by Carmen Marchena Alonso, Spanish photographer, mountaineer and climber. The exhibition features her analogue work from Iceland, the Pyrenees and, prevalently, Greenland, where Carmen travels every year, and where she sometimes works as a kayak and trekking guide, exploring the fjords, glaciers and icy seas around the island. Using various cameras and experimenting with different types of film, Carmen captures beautiful and surreal landscapes full of colours we wouldn't expect to see in a place known better for being blanketed in white snow and ice.
Carmen would like to dedicate 64°north to her good friend and fellow mountaineer and climber Román, who, along with 2 other mountaineers died in an avalanche on the 31st of March while working as a guide on a skiing expedition in the Swiss Alps.
"Adios, me voy"
como duelen los mirlos...
