Porsche Drive: Stelvio: Pass Portraits; Italy 2757m
The mountain passes of the Alps are definitely counted among the marvels of architectural history. The Stelvio pass, in Northern Italy, is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps. Built along dizzying edges and rough hillsides, steep curves lead upwards to icy heights. Stefan Bogner and Jan Karl Baedeker have paid tribute to the Stelvio Pass with spectacular aerial photography, documenting and portraying it in such detail for the very first time.
Stefan Bogner is not only a writer and photographer, but also an alpinist, globetrotter and motorsport maniac. In his pictures, sometimes captured from a helicopter, you can feel his passion for, and understanding of, the rhythm of the road and the aesthetic of the asphalt.
