The forest is everywhere, the forest is wonderful!
Photographer Markus Bühler's work had repeatedly led him into various woods and forests. So he started capturing their soothing atmosphere and beauty with his camera, as well as all the small and big cycles of life that they harbour. Gradually the imagery of the forest pictures became more intense, and an idea for a project was born.
»The camera is able to document the powers of nature,« says Markus Bühler. »Every moment is irretrievable. This is topped by the calm and inner peace you feel in the woods. And by the long wait for the perfect light – sometimes wild and powerful, sometimes gentle and quiet – that will often come completely unexpected.«
This picture book presents the many faces of our woods: from intertwined mixed forests with deadwood and vines to prominent mountain forests with arollas and larches. The interplay of various plants creates wonderful backdrops and unique sceneries. A book that opens up the senses to the fascinating world of the forest.
