Even one of the world's most beautiful mountains can use a little jewelry on a special occasion.


Renowned Swiss mountaineering photographer Robert Bösch captured a series of absolutely breathtaking photos of this monumental collaboration between humans and nature, the transient and the permanent.

Reflecting on the phenomenal challenge of replicating this temporary installation via a permanent medium, Bösch sums up the dichotomy of his task:

The Matterhorn is one of the most photographed mountains in the world. Its extraordinary form makes it easy to take a good photo. Paradoxically that was what made it so challenging, because it makes it so difficult to produce a breathtaking photo.”
