Optic of the Curve


Over the course of an entire year, London-based conceptual artist and photographer Rolf Sachs took a series of captivating photographs that straddle the line between abstract art and landscape photography. Taken from moving trains, “Camera in Motion: From Chur to Tirano” captures the stunning countryside of the Swiss Graubünden along the UNESCO recognized Rhaetian Albula/Bernina Railway. Now a century old, the route is a testament to the pioneering days of railroad building in Europe.

I have found memories of riding this route for weeks one summer long ago while camping and hiking throughout the  Upper and Lower Engadine and the Graubünden. Without a doubt, this is one of the most beautiful areas in Europe. Especially if you can get off the train and explore the mountains, valleys and villages.
