During the 19th century, Basel, Switzerland held a design competition for a new fountain. The winner, a fountain based on the mythical Basilisk is now installed in and around Basel. This book captures each fountain in it's own unique setting and draws out the differences and the similarities.

About the Author

Matthew Orris
mattheworris Basel, Switzerland

I moved to Switzerland in 2007 and since then I've been inspired by the beauty that Switzerland and Europe have to offer. I do my best to capture the images that define my experiences. My first project to capture Basel's Basilisk fountain is my first series, aimed at being more than just a collection of images, but an expression of the fountain's personality, each in its unique location. Watch for more series to emerge as I have a few works in progress.
