“Bettina Flitner bought a fisherboat in Burma, at the Inle Lake situated on a high plateau in the Shan mountains, near the Chinese border. She took this primeval barque to Germany and photographed different people in the boat on the River Rhine. They are voyagers, fugitives, drifters. They are alone, in pairs, or in a group. These realistic and mystic scenes alternate in this sometimes ironical, sometimes melancholical procession.”
