Beautifully Blurred Photos Taken from a Moving Train

London-based artist Rolf Sachs, who we discovered on Photojojo, traveled across Switzerland along the World Heritage Rhaetian Albula/Bernina Railway line taking photos from the moving train. Camera in Motion – From Chur to Tirano, supported by Leica Camera, explores the landscape through blurred impressions that at turns resemble watercolor paintings and glitch art.

“Having grown up and gone to school in the Engadin valley, I regularly travelled on the Albula/Bernina Railway line and developed a great appreciation for the natural beauty and diversity of the surrounding Alpine landscape,” Sachs writes on his website. “The scenery continuously surprises me as I discover new details with every journey. I wanted to experiment with combining the motion of the train with these remarkable views. The photographic results are intriguing and have gone beyond our expectations, as the camera manages to capture images that the human eye could not begin to perceive.” Take a closer look in our gallery, and watch a video of Sachs discussing the long-term project.
