Capturing Switzerland’s Charms in Photos

Photography by Mark Thompson

Switzerland is a country roughly the size of the state of Maryland, with a population less than New York City - and yet, what an inordinate amount of influence this one country has had on European and global culture.

A long-term New Yorker and a member of New York Travel Writers Association, Mark Thompson has also lived in San Francisco, Boston, Provincetown, D.C., Miami Beach and the south of France. The author of the novels WOLFCHILD and MY HAWAIIAN PENTHOUSE, he has a PhD in American Studies and is the recipient of fellowships at MacDowell, Yaddo, and Blue Mountain Center. His work has appeared in numerous publications.
