Bernese Alps

Rugged peaks, deep valleys and countless waterfalls are only some of the qualities of the Bernese Alps. For more than ten years I had the privilege to regularly photograph this region in all seasons and weather conditions.
This series of photographs is an attempt to document the raw beauty of these pristine landscapes. Many of which seem to be untouched by human influence. Unfortunately this is not the case. The most prominent indicators for our influence are the glaciers, which have been shrinking at ever-growing rates in recent decades. By the end of century most are expected to have melted away.
