Synopsis: Serious Alpine photography began in the middle of the 19th century by photographers who lugged large plate cameras into inaccessible regions to produce some of the most spectacular images of their time. Nearly two hundred years later, Olaf Unverzart has photographed the Alps and given them a 21st century perspective. Disappearing glaciers, the steeply inclined asphalt roads of the Tour de France, machinery crushed by avalanches, or huge cement fortifications imbedded in rock and defying nature - Unverzart's large-format images focus on the marks humankind leaves behind when attempting to master nature. He also documents nature's own power - in the form of avalanches and mudflows - when it overcomes these misguided efforts. Much more than another collection of nature photographs, this volume is a powerful reminder of the ramifications of human intervention toward earth's most majestic features - a story told without ideology or didactics, through the eyes of a keen and hopeful observer.

About the Author: Olaf Unverzart is a graduate of the Hochschule fur Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig, Germany. He has taught photography at the Art Academies of Nuremburg and Salzburg, and has published three books on his work. He lives in Munich, Germany.
