Water seems to have no borders, no limits. But there are always shores, at the sea, at the lake or at the river.

Sometimes these shores are solid, made of concrete or stone, they limit the freedom of the water like guiderails regulate the freedom of cars on a motorway. Sometimes these shores are soft and fluent, like the water itself, made of sand or plants, allowing freedom for the water. Sometimes, the shores are not even what they appear to be, limiting only the view on the water, like the beam of a bridge made of steel, allowing the river to flow beneath.

However, the shore is only in one direction, the river flows along across the picture from past to future all at the present.

All pictures were shot in around 200 m around the bridge over the Reuss at Rottenschwil.

The river is everywhere at the same time, at the origin and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the rapids, in the mountains, everywhere, and that for it there is only the present, not the shadow past, not the shadow future.

Hermann Hesse, Siddharta
