the more noble instinct that aspires

I have been a fan of filmmaker and photographer Alex Soloviev ever since I stumbled upon his visual ode to Germany’s capital in Everyday Berlin. His new short film Highland Fairytale is an atmospheric and haunting visit to Catalunya’s most important pilgrimage site at Montserrat. Soloviev captures the spiritual power and mystery of the mountainous redoubt just an hour from bustling Barcelona. The opening verse is from Longfellow’s “Haunted House”.
