Riverboom Ltd is a society founded by war reporters upon a moonless night in the North-West of Afghanistan, in an infamous valley infested by wolfs, bandits and runaway Taliban. This is the valley where the river Boom flows. Ever since Riverboom has been operating for world peace from its headquarters in Vevey, Switzerland, on the shores of the placid lake Leman.
The Riverbooms are photographers, film directors, graphic artists, journalists and writers. Riverboom publishes (among other things) a series of illustrated books in the collection Baechtold’s Best. These are guidebooks entirely made of images for uncommon destinations like the North Pole, Afghanistan or Louvreland.
As they say:
The world revealed in series: ten options, one best. Images replace detailed descriptions and long-winded local histories.
It will arouse the curiosity of intrepid explorers and provide them with a whole new travel experience.
Here are some of the photos from their Baechtold’s Best – Afghanistan series.
