Italian photographer Gustav Willeit was born in a small town of Brunico, which is located in the Alps, just a few kilometers from Austria and Switzerland. If one is born in the mountains, he will always love such places.
This is what happened to our author. He often travels between neighboring countries, and since 2006 he works as a freelance photographer in Italy and Switzerland. This kind of job implies that only a small amount of his works are sold; the rest of them remain in author’s archives. One day, when looking through his photo archives, Gustav Willeit noticed a few pictures that were missing a man. That’s how was born the idea that, over time, grew into an impressive series.
