These days, we cannot get enough of Horizonville, Switzerland. This enclave in the Rhone Valley is located amidst popular sights but remains hidden from the view of tourists. As you can tell, Horizonville might as well be located in the heartland of the United States.
While most of its residents have never traveled abroad, they have created a world based on their imagination of how life in the United States might be.
In 2005, photographer Yann Gross set out to document this unique community. I am very glad to have discovered his true work of art and appreciate the exclusive opportunity to introduce it to the Newly Swissed community!
Can you believe that these pictures were taken in Switzerland? For more impressions or to buy the book "Horizonville", visit the website of Yann Gross.
