The Danube River Project is a photo, video and sound portrait of the more than 2,800 kilometer-long river at its most significant points – the historical scenes, the large cities, the spectacular views – but also at its quieter stages. Taken from the water level, the upper part of the photographs shows the landscape, the lower part the water of the river at that point.

Water samples from the places photographed were analyzed and the laboratory values added to the pictures. This provides a “pictorial atlas” and a “blood count” all in one: an aesthetic and scientific compendium of Europe’s most important river, its cities and landscapes, from the Black Forest to the Black Sea.
