Adam Jeppesen is an artist whose images of remote, rugged landscapes are suffused with a sense of tranquillity, reflection and contemplation. Much of his work is inspired by a 487-day journey from the North Pole to Antarctica-an excursion that Jeppesen undertook alone. The melancholic, compelling images that resulted from this pilgrimage are the basis for several series in Jeppesen's oeuvre.  Jeppesen's practice is a search for spirituality, which is found in seclusion, but it also addresses the materiality and transience of the photograph as an object. The journey has left visible traces and blemishes on the photographs. Jeppesen is interested in the aesthetic value of these imperfect elements and the search for balance between purity, perfection and damage.
