The Eternal Beauty of Snowboarding by Jerome Tanon

‘A snowboard photographer for almost 10 years, I have been filming everything I take a photo of (and much more) since the past 3 years. I am now putting together a supercut style edit, showing the backstage of snowboard movie making, as well as rising existential questions such as : “what the fuck are we doing here?!”. In the style of a philosophy exam, the movie will try to answer the question : “Is there anything truely beautiful?”, that is, in what we do, and what we are, us pro snowboarders’

The world needs more people like Jerome Tanon. Talented, passionate, articulated, smart and a true believer in snowboarding. If you’ve been reading The Reason for any length of time you’ll be super familiar with is work as barely an issue goes by that we don’t feature his work in some way and his style integrates perfectly with what we’re trying to achieve. As well as taking some of the best photos in snowboarding, for the last three years he taped a video camera to the top of his stills camera and recorded EVERYTHING that happened, before editing it into the final movie, ‘The Eternal Beauty of Snowboarding’

The final movie is a 48 minute documentary about the real world of snowboarding, behind the imagery and away from all the blue skies and deep snow that we’re constantly told represents snowboarding. Well, there’s some of that in there as well, but the movie is about snowboarding in all it’s glory, fun, pain, disappointment and above all STOKE.
