Photographs by Matthieu Gafsou.
19/80 Editions, 2013. 104 pp., color illustrations throughout, 12¼x10½".

Publisher's Description
Swiss photographer Matthieu Gafsou takes a renewed look at the timeless mountain landscape of his homeland, drawing upon both its fascinating beauty and the sense of dread it instils - in short, a confrontation with the sublime. Beyond this, he also brings into focus the increasing ease of access to the famed mountain range for casual visitors and tourism, a phenomenon which threatens to reduce the powerful, almost metaphysical setting into a mere backdrop for snapshots. A critical essay by Aurélien Métroz and interview by Joël Vacheron accompany the numerous breathtaking, full-colour images produced in high contrast with myriad shades of grey and white.
