We like to think of mountains as something static, yet they are in constant motion and transformation. For centuries, mountains were seen as a place of terror; crossing them meant a high risk of death. It was only with the appearance of the first landscape photographs that society’s perception of mountains changed. A proliferation of images introduced the brutal landscape onto small postcards. Slowly the landscape gained an aspect of intimacy and the idea of it became romanticized.
