For the smallest of windows, thousands descend on the mountains for sport and recreation. They co-exist with ancient and tumultuous eco systems predating any human intervention.
Established as a photographic study by David Rosendale of snow fields in Australia and Japan, 'The Fall' had it’s inaugural exhibition in 2016. An identity to promote a series of exhibitions was developed along with a limited edition catalogue of works. The catalogue featured a sliding window wrap across the cover to encourage the reader to be drawn in to the details of the beautiful terrains captured by the photographer - before the snow has melted and they disappear, waiting for the next season’s fall.
Continuing this exploration of subject matter from 2016, Melbourne, Falls Creek and Canberra venues all hosted The Fall 2017 to 2018 and following 2019 exhibitions - the culmination of 12 months of photography of the Victorian Alpine region. A visually rich series of imagery over the course of seasonal change inspired an autumnal accent colour for this second series to complement the exhibition collateral - a pivotal mid point of transformation where opulent hues begin appearing before the first blankets of alpine snow arrive.
A continuous project featuring the snow fields of Mount Hotham, Falls Creek, Perisher & Hakuba, ‘The Fall’ is photographer David Rosendale’s documentation and tribute to these ever changing alpine regions.
