The Alpine railroads open up magnificent landscapes, and each is unique. From the Tendabahn in the west of the French Maritime Alps to the impressive Swiss railroads and the Semmeringbahn in the east of the Alps, Steinhilber has photographed them all. His railroad landscapes combine mountains and railroads, farms and villages, rivers and lakes to create a distinctive cultural landscape.
For almost three years and over 1,500 kilometers, the photographer traveled on foot in the Alps, always looking for the right vantage point for the large-format, richly detailed photographs. Now the opulent magnificent volume “Alpine Railways”, with texts by Eugen E. Huesler, has been published by Frederking & Thaler in XL format (unfolded 38 x 57 cm). Via his homepage the volume can be ordered signed and with dedication.
The photos are available exclusively from laif.
