Ski for Freedom

This photo was taken after four days on the frozen Zanskar River. Most of the time, we had been in ravines without a few, until the valley opened up on this day. I made use of the opportunity and climbed 100 meters to shoot this photo of extreme biker Claude Balsiger.
Photography has always been a part of my life. I started capturing images more than 20 years ago.What started as a hobby quickly evolved into a passion, with that passion leading me to my perfect profession.It is this passion which helps me excel and succeed on a daily basis.

Ralf Gantzhorn was born in 1964, holds a M.S. in Geology – and has even worked as a geologist (as an independent consultant in the contamination sector). He has been climbing since 1983 and working as a photographer since 1985. As a northern German, he is always torn between the far too distant mountains and the fresh sea air, but he’s found a compromise in Scandinavia, Scotland and Patagonia (where he has now spent over three years). He enjoys organizing trips in areas where unfamiliar vistas – which haven’t already been photographed 1000 times – lure from every corner. He often experiences his images as far too static, but then is pleased with the abundance of triangles in the structure and the fantastic light.

It is a natural spectacle that takes your breath away and that instinctively describes the relationship between man and nature. Humility and tranquil joy of existence seizes every viewer.
