Stunning slow burn that doesn't waste a minute
22 February 2020 | by vitusbenediktSee all my reviews

This is a slow burn that takes it's time and yet doesn't waste a minute. The photography of the mountain landscape is stunning, of course. Nothing much happens in those sceneries, but human figures slowly moving through empty space. It is this vast space in between those glimpses of human suffering that is so hauntingly, so eternally, beautiful. The images of such grandiose nothingness merely invite us in the nicest way possible to dwell on them, to contemplate perhaps, or even digress, into the vast space that lies between the world and us. In any case, it's a journey worth taking.
