‘Le Ski’ was created by Emma Hartvig in the mountains of ?Austria?. Although this series of images ?was influenced by old Hollywood cinema (think ’on her majesty’s secret service’) – the focus lies on storytelling within a still image. A narrative is being captured but the audience does not know the before and after. Intimate crops of the picture where no face is shown adds to the curiosity of looking at a film still? – the? picture-perfect surface seduces the viewer, momentarily masking the absurd elements that underpin each image.?
