About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and German

Strange stone formations, overgrown primeval forests, arctic ice floes – Max Schmid's photographs bear witness to the fact that Switzerland is not just a land of Alpine idylls and snowy mountains. These pictures show the wild side of Switzerland, untamed nature in all its dramatic power. One might be in Australia, Greenland or some other unexplored area of the planet forgotten by humans. Sublime, bare, lush, colourful, romantic or even apocalyptic – the pictures in Swiss Wilderness show just how incredibly diverse the Swiss landscape can be.
