MATTERHORN - Portrait of a Mountain, PortrĂ€t eines Berges (05067)
by award-winning photographer Nenad Saljic
âTHERE are some images that can only be captured by someone with a personal, and borderline spiritual, understanding of a location. Photographer Nenad Saljicâs new book contains perhaps one of the best recent examples of this. Within its pages there are a variety of âportraitsâ of a single location: Switzerlandâs famous (and at times infamous) Alpine mountain, the Matterhorn. Nenad trained as a mountaineer and caver in his youth, and it was these experiences that caused him to fall deeply in love with, as he terms it, ânatureâs most ancient textures, forms and shapesâ. In this volume we find a visual document of Nenadâs love affair with the Matterhorn. Each image shows the vast formation under a variety of weather conditions â mist, storm, sun and rain. A pure overwhelming beauty suffuses every image. Matterhorn is an incredible and perfect encapsulation of the sublime.â ?????
