Some mythical mountains helped build the reputation of the villages and valleys, in their neighborhood, most of the time through a long human and sporting history, written by men strongly willing to reach their summits. These
myths, since then, ensure the growth and prosperity of these villages, that became ski resorts. Most of them arouse from the 19th century, sometimes even before.
But there is an exception in the restricted list of mythical mountains; a mountain whose legend was built much more recently, much quicker. And that legend is not due to the bravery of men who attempted the ascent. No, the
summit, unlike its peers, can be reached without any major obstacle. What has contributed to its lightning reputation is linked to the exploits of a few men and women, not in the ascent, but the descent, of its breathtaking steep face.
The advent of freeride revealed its impressive north face, at the heart of the Swiss Wallis. Today, it is renowned as one of the most dreaded in the world. Within only a few years, its name has gone around the planet: The Bec des
Extreme skiing revealed the Bec des Rosses beyond the borders of Switzerland. It now also gives the opportunity to discover others aspects of its history. Through testimonies of the elderly of the valley as well as mountain
guides, among many others, this film traces the advent of a unique mountain to passionate people around the world, and uncovers unexpected events of its history.

Based on who this person is I knew I would scrutinize this image far more than any other portrait that I had ever made. During this project “The Making of a Celebrity Portrait,” it redefined how I view celebrities. It made me question if celebrity culture influenced us so greatly that we want to be portrayed like them. In a world that revolves around social networking and selfies I started wondering what these images really say about us.
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN. I’m asking you to include a photograph of yourself for this project. The idea is to collect many images so we can create one picture of who we really are. On Instagram, #iamthecelebrity with a portrait of you. Follow @ian_ruhter and @Profotoglobal for project updates. All month long we’ll be cataloguing and commenting on these images. Once this is done we’ll create the final project—stay tuned for updates!

“Pushing through the darkness” is a short video project about skateboarding in the city night.
Practicing skateboarding during the daylight hours is the normal routine for skateboarders: they meet at the skatepark to chill with the friends and to play game of S.K.A.T.E. match or to try to learn new tricks. Especially during the summer, when the days are hotter and longer and just try to do a kick flip makes you sweat, discovering the city night with your best friends is the best thing to do as skateboarder. Night session can be the best option to skate with a cooler temperature, with less traffic, and to access some skate spots that are off limits during the day. When the sun sets and the night falls over the streets, skateboarders begin their night life. Sharing passions and challenges practicing skateboarding can become something special, something rare and unforgettable. Approaching a night session as a skateboarder is different from a normal daytime session: there are many difficulties in practicing during nightime and darkness obviously being the main one.
Trying to focus on a trick is harder, solving the problems on the in run, on the landing or on the sketchy flat, and generally navigating the spot are more difficult. For all these reasons concentration, determination and perseverance must be at their highest during a night session.This is what makes a simple grind down a rail or a tech line on a street curb special, intense and amazing.
This project lays between the action-sports video and the documentary genres. Focusing on the emotions and the intense relationship between skateboarders and the streets of their cities, “Pushing through the darkness” gives a bright vision of skateboarding in the city night.
