It’s the time between the first snowfalls and the beginning of the winter sports season that fascinates photographer Stefan Bogner most. Because the mountains don’t present themselves as postcard beauties but seem forbidding and rough: a monotonous landscape with gray and white slopes merging into the sky, and roads that look like black ink lines on a lighter background. “Focusing on the essential always makes me realize what architects and engineers have succeeded in creating in the mountains,” says Stefan Bogner. The results of his winter journey through the Alps and Iceland can be marveled at in Escapes – Winter. Breathtakingly beautiful.
