Like Any Other Place
In people's minds, Switzerland is synonymous with mountains and valleys, with economic prosperity and order. I frequently find myself on Swiss soil and have come to know this nation little by little, with the prospect of one day moving there. Intimidated by the ubiquitous sense of austerity, I undertook this visual investigation in search of common elements, hoping to feel welcomed, exploring villages and places, observing the gardens of houses, lingering on store windows in population centers.
In time I realized that Switzerland is exactly like any other place in which to live and that while it frequently confirms one's preconceptions about it, it also knows how to show itself as different and sometimes astonishing.
