A boat from Burma on the Rhine. The photographer Bettina Flitner bought the wooden fishing vessel on Lake Inle, situated on a high plateau in the Shan Mountains near to the Chinese border, and transported it back from Myanmar to Germany. Here on the banks of the Rhine, Flitner photographed a diverse collection of individuals and groups of people. Casting managers and drag queens, nuns and the homeless into a mise-en-scène, she orchestrated a lyrical, poetic procession of people on their travels: nomadic globetrotters, journeying upstream and downstream along the river of life.

A beautiful and interesting book. The idea has surprices all the way through. I think the book is a perfect stage for this concept, moving forwards - as the boat people - making the viewer part of the situation.
