Highway life

Photographer Jean-Pierre Grüter visited people who live near the north-south A2 highway.

The A2, which connects Basel and Chiasso, runs through a populated and yet mountainous area. In places it runs very close to people's homes. The photo book Wohnort Autobahn (Benteli, 2010) explains the historical, cultural and social background of the people living along this road axis.
