  • Portrait-Nicolai-BrüggerWhen the Milky Way shines upon an alpine highway… Nicolai Brügger´s impressive night- time panoramas combine long exposures of cars moving along the serpentine roads of the Alps with moody images of the night sky.
    In his compositions, the light trails formed by car headlights meet the sudden drama of a thunderstorm in the mountains.
    After spending long nights on snow-covered mountains, the amateur photographer from the Bavarian city of Garmisch works with two or three images to produce his desired result. “I tend to design my images in my mind before I start photographing,” Brügger admits. In his daytime job, he works as a geriatric nurse.
