Adam Jeppesen’s latest works, The Flatlands Camp Project, were recorded on his journey from the Arctic through North and South America to Antarctica. For 487 days Jeppesen travelled in solitude and from this long journey a series of melancholic, evocative landscape pictures has emerged. There is something fundamentally romantic about The Flatlands Camp Project. Jeppesen went as a solitary traveler on an exhausting journey through wastelands, where the cultural markers of modern society grew distant and the traditional sense of time faded away. The detailed documentary expression mixed with an enigmatic, melancholic atmosphere is a distinct feature in Jeppesen’s work. The Flatlands Camp Project is located somewhere between dream and documentary. But Jeppesen also experiments with unconventional techniques in the printing process and presentation of the works. The photographs were taken with a large format camera (4×5) and some of the negatives were scratched by grit that coincidentally found its way into the box of negatives during the journey. Most photographers would discard pictures with flaws like that, but instead Jeppesen uses flaws in a conscious aesthetic manner to add an aura of something fleeting and unfinished to the pictures. Each work is made by scanning the negative and dividing it into A4-sized squares, which Jeppesen then prints on traditional photopaper and photocopies. The photocopies are put together to form the original image and are held only with pins, adding a texture and a new aesthetic quality to the work. Adam Jeppesen is one of the greatest talents in contemporary Danish photography. He distinguished himself internationally with the Wake series, which was published as a book on the renowned publishing house Steidl in 2008.
