Extensive snowy rocks and the wind-stiff peaks from cold mountains are not the best place for large-scale photographic work of art. However, the Swiss photographer Robert Bosch decided to use them just that. His photographs may involve hundreds of climbers facing harsh conditions with one sole purpose – to help create the perfect shot, wrote Bored Panda.
To mark the 150th anniversary of the first ascent of the Matterhorn in the Alps by Edward Uimpatr and his team Mammut, a Swiss company mountaineering gear turns to Bosch’s request to make a special photo on this occasion, to be included in their advertising campaign. A team of climbers and climbing Hyornli lit bright red lights at sunrise illuminate the way in which Whymper and his team have gone in the successful ascent of the Matterhorn.
