Matthieu Gafsou | Alpes

I love these photographs from Swiss photographer Matthieu Gafsou of the Swiss Alps in the summertime. I’ve only included landscape shots here, but if you view the work on his website, you’ll see several photographs which include tourists on the mountains, which is explained: “He questions the lost of genuineness and solemnity of the mountains caused by our presence.” It definitely comes through in the photos, and I felt a strong sense of discomfort seeing people all dressed up in tourist garb, taking photos of their own or seeing the sights through binoculars.
