“Top of the Alps”: Matthias Taugwalder and Willi P. Burkhardt exhibit great panoramas of the Alps


Wednesday 2 May 2012

Discover “Top of the Alps”, the exhibition of Matthias Taugwalder and Willi P. Burkhardt, two pioneers of Alpine panoramic photography. The exhibition offers seven large-format panoramic images of different glacier-covered regions of the Alps.

In three walk-through 360° rotundas of varying sizes, visitors find themselves in an exhilarating Alpine landscape in which looming summits, plunging precipices and high Alpine glaciers transport them to a world that is normally inaccessible to them.

The extraordinary resolution of these cutting-edge panoramic photographs can be experienced on a touchscreen computer: a black dot in the panoramic view is transformed into a mountain climber armed with pickaxe and crampon.

The exhibition takes place in the Glacier Garden, Lucerne (Switzerland) until September 16, 2012.
