  •  Small but nice: Saint-Victor-sur-Rhins is a village near Thizy. Around 2000 inhabitants live in the French commune. It belongs to the Loire department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. Saint Victor, however, can look back on a record: At the beginning of the twentieth century, there were three rail stations here. © Gregor Hinz (detail)

David Schmidt about "Saint-Victor-sur-Rhins"

Five pages show five different scenes from this period, drawn in felt-tip pen. Viewed in isolation, the word-image collages seem like a loose chain of travel impressions..."

"The Salty River"

On the very first pages, Jan Bauer makes it clear that his focus in “The Salty River" is solitude, peace and quiet, the inner self. This is an ego trip to help him cope with the loss of his mother and the end of a 16-year relationship. The salty river is a dry riverbed which Jan Bauer, starting in Alice Springs, follows for 15 days and nights – 233 kilometres along the Larapinta Trail.
