The book is an artistic homage to the watercastle Switzerland, the origin of Europe's most important rivers. Beat Presser reveals in his photographs the mystic of the eternal transformation of water. Landscapes shaped by the persistence of soft waterdrops, valleys carved by the force of age-old glaciers, strong and yet fading away. Breathtaking photographs show the beauty of water whether liquid or frozen like bizarre, bewildering, fascinating abstract paintings.
Photographer Beat Presser was born in 1952 in Basel, Switzerland. He is the editor of Village Cry and the author of many books.
