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 360Â° 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 theÂ Glacier Garden, Lucerne (Switzerland) until September 16, 2012.
