The Ethereal World of Extreme Landscape Photographer Alexandre Deschaumes

Self-taught photographer Alexander Deschaumes only started making photos back in 2003, but his dedication to the craft and his thirst for jaw-dropping landscapes have brought him a long way since then. Deschaumes braves extreme weather and hazardous landforms, going to locations that many landscape photographers would never dare venture, all for the sake of his images. The 2-minute video above offers a look into his world of extreme landscape photography.

It’s actually the official movie trailer for a 52-minute-long documentary film about Deschaumes’ work, titled, “La QuĂȘte d’Inspiration” (The Quest for Inspiration). Created by filmmaker Mathieu Le Lay, the movie will be released at the end of this year.

Here are some photos that’ll give you a taste of the trailer and the upcoming movie:
