Nowhere is the question of existence so tantalizing as in the isolated landscape of a mountainous region. The sublimity of the natural world - thematized since the 18th century - reverberates throughout this volume of photographs. Markus Gisler has an eye for the unusual, the surprising and the touching. He has a particular appreciation for the in-between tones: foggy, snowy or rainy days, mystical mountain ridges, dramatic cloud formations and gloomy twilights. With carefully conceived compositions, with horizontal lines and aligning elements, the photographer creates a magic that is all his own. The photographs from the Alpine landscape are potent images of nature that transcend typical renderings of structures, forms and landscapes.
