This week, we’re featuring a mesmerizing travel story of the Pyrenees mountain range from film photographer Andrew Foster. Andrew captured the sprawling mountain landscapes on Lomochrome Purple film, creating magical, dream-like images. Here is more from Andrew about the Pyrenees mountains…
The Pyrenees is a mountain range in France that’s as magnificent and vast (almost) as the Alps, but far more wild and untouched. I visited it last year and stayed right in the heart of it, just before the Cirque De Cagateille.
I fell in love with how quiet and how green it was. So much so that when I returned to London at the end of the trip my eyes still saw green in the dull grayness of the city. The wildlife was as rugged as the scenery; we met wild cats that refused to be tamed, but would gladly steal our BBQ sausages when we weren’t looking, cows that blocked the only road down from a mountain for a good half an hour, unfazed by the honking of grumpy humans, and the most colorful and varied butterflies I have ever seen.
The place is truly untainted by man. An emerald fairy tale / Lord of the Rings-esque landscape right at the bottom of France. I wanted to capture the landscape with Lomochrome Purple film to provide a different dreamier perspective that mimicked the feelings of awe and wonder I experienced there.
