Photographing Extreme Skiing in the Alps

Here’s a beautiful behind-the-scenes video that takes us on an adventure with Magnum photographer Jonas Bendiksen as he shoots extreme skiing at the foot of Mont Blanc. Bendiksen was testing the Leica S2 medium-format DSLR — typically thought of as a studio camera — to see how it stands up in harsh outdoor environments.

You can find resulting photographs and Bendiksen’s thoughts on the camera in this interview on the Leica blog.
