Outside interests: powerful imagery in the shape of a depiction of the art of ‘Downhill’, one of anticipation, balance and flexibility. A formation of eight skiers is captured perfectly, silhouetted against a blanket of snow. The Alpine village of Villars-sur-Ollon is a highly developed mountain resort in the Swiss Alps (in the words of intrepid pioneer traveller Lord Fortescue, ‘wild romantic beauties’). Ideal topography and climatic conditions make Villars a select resort in both summer and winter, and the ancient village commands ‘a glorious prospect’, the scene-stealing panorama encompassing the Dents du Midi.
