Alps

“Alps can be seen as the story of a “compromise”: to enjoy certain places it was necessary human intervention, but had inevitably “imbruttirli” or altering them to make them accessible. Photographs are a testimony, does not contain a criticism, since they are also aware of the beneficial effects of modernization, but despite this I hope that the vision of these photographs help make more people aware of the beauty that surrounds them, and it gets a boost to preserve it.

Even though high-altitude tourism is undoubtely a considerable source of income for mountain communities – who are frequently neglected by national agricultural and farming support policies –, massive anthropisation brings about a significant modification of landscape. The pictures of this inquiry aim at upsetting the viewers to make them feel like any mountain enthusiast who at the end of their trip are faced with something they would not want to find. My goal is to sensitize everybody and make them be aware of the irreversible damage that is nowadays suffered by our wonderful landscapes.”
