Glaciers, waterfalls, rivers and lakes – next to rock formations these are the defining elements of mountain landscapes. Water forces its way from the summits to the valley, shaping the landscape over thousands of years. Water in the mountains sometimes seems threatening and wild and sometimes gentle and dreamy. Swiss photographer Roland Gerth and journalist Emil Zopfi have together produced a book full of wonderful images and inspiring passages. It pays homage to the wildness and aesthetic quality of water in the Swiss mountains.Roland Gerth, Emil Zopfi, “Faszination Bergwasser – Die schönsten Wasserlandschaften der Schweiz”; AS Verlag, Zurich; 128 pages, 105 images; CHF 45, EUR 35.90.
