Switzerland Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

View all 18 Photos

Born and raised in Grisons, Switzerland, Martina Bisaz has always been surrounded by picturesque landscapes. But it wasn’t until she saw an exhibition at her school that she became fascinated not only with drawing and illustration, but also with photography. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Scientific Visualization, she started working as a part-time illustrator for Zurich University, joining the archaeology department.
Currently, she divides her time between scientific illustration work and her freelance photography and illustration business. Her striking images have already won the approval of the Instagram generation and her personal page has close to 200k followers. This is an impressive number for someone who is not a celebrity, and it speaks volumes on this generation’s thirst for great photography that captures the fascinating beauty of nature. Simply glancing through her feed you quickly understand why this young and talented artist has amassed such a following.
Her photography is unique – these are not just images that chronicle the undeniable and breathtaking beauty of Switzerland; they are so much more than classic landscape photographs. One can describe them as paintings captured in an instance. In the majority of Martina’s images, nature is portrayed as monumental and almost overwhelming in its scale and beauty.
Viewers gasp as they admire the sight of towering mountains, reflections that create a dreamlike atmosphere, the contrast of animals and humans placed alongside natural colossi. Some images have creative compositions or unique perspectives. Others feature the artist’s beloved black Fiat500 67′ or her orange VW T2 77′ wagon. But in most of them you can find impressive mountains with snowy peaks. If the goal was to make one fall in love with a country they have never visited before, Martina Bisaz achieves it effortlessly. It’s a beautiful homage to Switzerland, nature, creative landscape photography, and exploration.
