WALTER NIEDERMAYR: THE ASPEN SERIES

The Aspen Series by Walter Niedermayr was commissioned in 2009 by Paula and Jim Crown, partners of Aspen Skiing Company. They are the first works produced in the U.S. by the internationally acclaimed photographer. The combination of Niedermayr’s photography and the epic mountain scenery is a visual tour de force. Even long time Aspenites remarked that they ‘saw the mountains anew’ through Niedermayr’s work. 

The Aspen Skiing Company and the Crown Family are mission-driven to provide the best skiing and snowboarding experience for you, our guests. Since it’s founding in 1947 the Aspen Skiing Company has been committed to the renewal of the mind, body and spirit, and appreciation of our place in the natural world. The Aspen Series continues that tradition. This innovative, slopeside exhibit is another one of the many reasons to make Aspen/Snowmass your vacation destination.

THE ARTIST

Walter Niedermayr was born in Bolzano, Italy in 1952. Niedermayr began photographing the landscape in 1987 and is recognized worldwide for his distinctive visual vocabulary’s use of multi-panel images and subtle color.
