The term alpenglow refers to the purple light that can often be seen on the tops of mountains, a spectacularly beautiful natural phenomenon.
But in this magnificent volume of photographs, it’s not only the Alps that are glowing in warm translucent light, but the girls also. Is this for real? It seems these strikingly pretty creatures have climbed up steep hills and hiked through meadows only to cast off their Dirndls with enthusiastic aplomb.
Well, Stefan Söll knows exactly how to turn such fantasies into reality. He has discovered the natural beauty of alpine flora and fauna, and uses the mountains where Germany, Austria and Switzerland meet as his setting. His studio in Friedrichshafen on the Bodensee is in the perfect location from which to start these photographic excursions.
Stefan Söll began to take photos at the age of 15, and soon landscape and portrait photography had become his favourite subject. In addition to his astonishing talent at choosing the ideal background and selecting key details, he also has the rare knack of capturing ideal lighting conditions.
