Jaw-Dropping Photos Showcase the Magical Beauty of the Alps

Alps Photos by Lukas Furlan Photography

The Dolomites, Italy

Self-taught photographer Lukas Furlan has shot an eclectic array of enchanting landscapes around the world. While his travels have taken him to jaw-dropping sites like the majestic mountains of Patagonia and the idyllic Icelandic countryside, nothing can compare to his love of the Alps—a setting that has a prominent place in his heart.

“I can say that I have a special relationship with these mountains for a very long time,” he says. In fact, his attachment to the Alps dates all the way back to when he was a child. Raised in South Tyrol, a province in northeast Italy, Furlan was never far from the Dolomites, a mountain range that makes up a section of the Southern Limestone Alps.

Because of this sentimental connection, the Alps remain his favorite shooting location in Italy—perhaps the world. In addition to the Dolomites, Furlan has photographed the landforms in France and Austria, where he currently lives. In each case, Furlan captures the qualities that make the mountains so special, from their icy peaks and snow-covered slopes to their sleepy villages and dreamy campsites.

Much more than a means of making beautiful art, Furlan’s practice facilitates his love of travel and fuels his need to explore. He tells My Modern Met, “Photography is a great motivation to discover new places and to get out of your comfort zone.”
