Switzerland is famous for its scenic landscape. However, visitors often notice the sharp contrast between densely populated main valleys where traffic infrastructure, power lines and factories dominate and the picturesque mountains where small villages and huts provide just the right amount of civilization. The Fjords of Switzerland series tries to idealize the landscapes by filling up the valleys with pristine bodies of water.
