Uli Wiesmeier, an internationally recognised and highly renowned commercial and mountain photographer, is presenting mountain worlds as we have never seen them before: He chose 16 mountain related nouns – such as mountain railway, mountain guide, or mountain view – and did photographical interpretations of them. Whereas the portraits of mountain rescuer and mountain farmer are expressing the author’s admiration and respect for these hard and dangerous jobs, others, as for example mountaineering, are examined more critically and also show the dangers of mass tourism towards this fragile eco system. With its incredibly powerful photos this book provides an authentic and unpretentious view of the mountains!
