During a summer, the well-known village of Rossinière, situated at the symbolic altitude of 1000 meters, in the foothills of the Alps, offers ten exhibitions of contemporary photography, housed in rustic sites that evoke past ways of life. However, far removed from touristic postcards, Alt. +1000 proposes a promenade through the work of contemporary imagemakers who treat altitude in various angles, poetic, documentary and artistic.
The village of Rossinière is reputed for its 17th and 18th century architecture and its verdant setting, characteristic of the Pays-d’Enhaut. Alt. +1000 contrasts this vernacular village identity with the questioning, inquisitive and provocative viewpoints of the artists. The route through the heart of the village invites visitors – from Switzerland and abroad – to admire the works as well as the sites .
