My name is Karol Nienartowicz and I am a mountain photographer from Poland. For the last 6 years, I’ve been traveling around Europe, climbing its mountains and spending my nights in a tent in the wildest and most remote places. I usually photograph sunrises and sunsets, so I would put my tent in beautiful scenery. Therefore, I decided to photograph my so-called ‘mobile home’ in the majestic mountain landscape.

The first time I stayed in the tent was in 2009 during the trip with my friend in Rodnei Mountains in Romania. One night the temperature dropped to -10 degrees Celsius, and the other night we survived heavy snowfall and hurricane wind. However, I was not afraid. I loved it and after I returned from that trip I bought my own tent.

My first tent was a Czech Hannah, model Troll, which traveled with me the whole Europe, and the highest place where I took it was at an altitude of 3,000 meters in the Swiss Alps at the foot of the Matterhorn, Valais. Within the 5 years of using Hannah, I used that tent in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania and Ukraine, the Sudeten Mountains in Poland, the Balkans, Dinaric Mountains, the Alps in France, Switzerland and Austria, in the Scottish Grampian and Trotternish.

In August 2014, I replaced the old and heavily used Troll tent into a great tent made by Polish company Marabut, which was my partner in organizing my photo expedition to the Swiss Alps.
