As in the last three years, I participated also this year in the Ticino Workshop organized by FineartPix. This year’s topic was “all’acqua”, which means «about water». We were a group of five photographers, mentored by the instructors Ferit Kuyas and Markus Zuber. We were working our way down from San Gottardo to Claro close to Bellinzona, the capital of the Canton.

The “Borders” post from June this year reflects my preparation work for the workshop, and I decided, also based on the feedback from the instructors, to continue with the «borders» series. The final selection of pictures is presented here. I was mainly fascinated by the hard and soft change of surfaces and colour flows, created by the sky, the environment and the colours of the ground below the waters surface.

The next image does not fully comply with the formal criteria for my “borders” concept. However, the flows of colour and the reflections are stunning.

“They both listened silently to the water, which to them was not just water, but the voice of life, the voice of Being, the voice of perpetual Becoming”
