Wanting to shine a spotlight on how we tend to ruin the best nature has to offer us, this Alps photo series by documentary photographer Ettore Moni is fascinating and saddening at the same time.

"My goal is to sensitize every body and make them be aware of the irreversible damage that is nowadays suffered by our wonderful landscapes," says Moni.

Showing the recent manmade buildings popping up all over the stunning mountain landscape, the photographer uses the untouched and completely raw Alps photo series to make the point that even though high-altitude tourism is an important source of income for the mountain communities in the area, this major urbanization of the area is actually changing the landscape.

"The pictures of this inquiry aim at upsetting the viewers to make them feel like any mountain-enthusiast who at the end of their trip are faced with something they would not want to find," he says.
