MOUNTAIN PASSES #7
Today we present the last part of Stephan Zirwes’ filmic series on mountain passes, which portrays the Spluga tunnel on the Italien side. Shot with a drone and carefully framed, the photographic images meditate on these ancient imposing monuments:
More than a hundred years old – often the only connection between valleys and also cultures – open six months of a year and closed for six months in winter: mountain passes. In earlier times vitally important for commerce and strategic purposes, they become more and more important as tourist attractions today. Built with great human effort under hard conditions – constructions which hardly find attention although they are national monuments.
