›Swimming is a delicate balance between flying and sinking‹
This quote by Burkhard Strassmann opens Julia Baier's book ›Water Matters‹. Her pictures show what people do with water, and even more, how water affects people and the animals, too. Not on the whole, but in the immediate encounter. When bathing, diving, splashing and spraying, in rain, snow and ice, in the city and in the countryside.
And as the water itself the photographer seems to get to wherever it flows and foams, drips, bubbles and reflects or where the water and its derivatives form into mysterious and beautiful abstractions - in Budapest or Bremen, in Passau or Paris, Chicago or Sovata.
Julia Baier's book is a refreshing and fluid trip through the international water world - with surface tension, cliffs, swirls, pull and draft.
