From the Amazon to the Aare

How the camera got into the crocodile's mouth and other stories.

River dolphins, bears and crocodiles, sunken rainforests and abysmal caves, icy glacial lakes and overgrown tropical rivers: Michel Roggo had all this and much more in front of his camera for seven years for the Freshwater Project, in forty bodies of water on all continents and in breathtakingly beautiful natural landscapes. Making of clips provide insights into the work of a photographer in exotic locations under difficult conditions.

After this project, Michel Roggo turned to the aquatic habitats of Switzerland. For example the Sense with its barbs, the Verzasca gneiss gorges, the mysterious Giessen landscape near Münsingen, enchanted karst springs, horrific peat bogs or meltwater lakes of rapidly disappearing glaciers.

The latest pictures come from renatured water bodies. These pictures of unexpected beauty show that humans can also have a positive effect on bodies of water.
