Sowing seeds

Flowers | Josh Absenger Season Recap 2023

By: Roy Kittler November 19, 2023

Flowers, a short film by Josh Absenger, that shows his 2023 season.

In skiing Josh finds his personal freedom. “For me, skiing is always a form of art like painting or writing a book. Video projects like this gave me space for self-expression. That’s why I still love to go outdoors and shoot some film. You can do 100 percent your own thing. There are no rules or something that limits you in creativity. And what I like about projects like this. All starts from zero. It’s a growing process. It’s like sowing seeds in the soil and waiting for them to grow. That’s why I called this project flowers. Some years they grow better and some not. That’s life.”

This season we had a great trip to Kiroro Hokkaido. I teamed up with Fabi Hyden, Luggi Brucic and Sebastian Höllwart . We got pretty lucky with the timing and had 10 days of great conditions. A few ski-touring days during winter in Europe and some sunny park laps at Absolutpark.

Special Thanks to Fabi Hyden, Sebastian Höllwart, and all the other filmers. It’s a privilege to have such creative minds on board.

Thanks to my family.
