Sammy Hart is known in Germany and abroad for his unusual, artistic, and authentic portrait photography. This illustrated volume testifies to the Munich-based photographer’s other passion: the mountains. To escape his everyday urban life, he makes regular trips to the Alps. They are a refuge and a retreat for him. In the mountains the everyday gives way to natural adventures.
As he does in his portraits, the photographer elicits the unique character of these ancient rocky eminences in his excellent pictures. Hart stages them showing us the dramatic lighting, abrupt changes in the weather, rough cliffs, narrow stairs, the heights of pleasure … These are moments of mountain solitude, poetic images, full of beauty and sublimity—always photographed with an eye alert to the ecological realities of our time.
