The Danube River Project

by Andreas Müller-Pohle

The Danube is the European river par excellence. On its way to the “new Europe”, it flows through ten states – Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Moldova, the Ukraine and Romania – and thus more countries and landscapes than any other river on the continent.

Berlin photographer and media artist Andreas Müller-Pohle has produced an extraordinary portrait of this mighty river in his “Danube River Project”. The photographs, taken from both below and above the river‘s surface, provide a “intriguing fresh vision” (Ivaylo Ditchev) of the Danube with its unique urban panoramas and natural phenomena, its bridges, harbors and factories.

Müller-Pohle‘s poetically documentary portrait of the Danube also includes the water as a chemical substrate: Water samples taken from the spots photographed have been chemically analyzed and the values inscribed into the image. The result is a “pictorial atlas” and a “blood count” all in one: an aesthetic and scientific compendium of Europe‘s most important river, from the Black Forest to the Black Sea.

The Danube River Project is a must for Danube fans and landscape lovers, for environmentalists and aficionados of contemporary experimental photography.

/// Press comments

"Besäße die Donau wie durch ein Wunder plötzlich Augen, schaute sie wohl genauso verdutzt aus der Wäsche, Pardon, aus dem Wasser, auf die an ihren Ufern gelegenen Landschaften und Städte, wie wir es nun tun."

"... ist das Bild von Müller-Pohles Weitwinkel-Objektiv tief und weit und souverän."

EIKON

"Und tatsächlich wird hier fotografiert, was man nicht sieht: Ziel ist keineswegs das schöne Bild, die Idylle der Donauwellen, das wäre zu einfach."
