Another Water.

Another Water. Photographs by Roni Horn. Steidl, 2011. 112pp., illustrated throughout, 19,5x30cm.

I love water and am endlessly fascinated and inspired by the work of Roni Horn.

Book description:

“ 'What do you know about water? Only that it’s everywhere differently'. - Roni Horn

In 2000 Roni Horn published 'Another Water', an examination of the water of the River Thames through photographs and text. This new edition of 'Another Water' is to be published with the exact paper and binding that Horn had always envisioned for the book.

Water is a central theme for Horn: as a component of weather, a defining feature of her beloved Iceland, and as a beautiful, changeable element on which life depends.

'Another Water' is an ode to the substance of water but also on its impact on identity and imagination: in Horn’s words, 'You can’t talk about water without talking about oneself'. ”
