Songs, books, poems and life-affirming adventures have all been inspired by these previously sub-oceanic lumps of rock that we call mountains. Such magnitude! Such weight! No wonder they continue to inspire us little humans in as many ways as possible. Photographer Kevin Kunstadt has fallen in love with one particular mountain range, the Dolomites in Northern Italy and has proceeded to document the strange relationship humans have with them. It’s a truly magnificent collection of images — highlights including the farmers field on an almost Lord of The Rings style cliff face, to the children casually swinging by a sickeningly deep valley.
Go and immerse yourself in Kevin’s unbridled passion for the mountains, now at the Oresman Gallery in Massachusetts.
