I have to admit that I discovered the joys of the fresh alpine air only in recent years. As a kid, visiting my great aunt who lives in the middle of the alps for our annual skiing holiday was my nightmare come true. But now, I am actually very much looking forward to visiting her and going on small hikes this summer. And this collection of private vintage photos make me want to pack my backpack and hit the road straight away.
Based in LA and Vancouver, Alex Strohl is a French photographer who spends his days exploring the most stunning landscapes, notably in North America. You can check out his work on his website, his Tumblr and – my favourite source – his Instagram. His shots of Alaska make me want to go there even more (as I already mentioned in this post about the Magic Bus). I can’t believe he really took all these photos with his phone!
