From 29 March

Bears and crocodiles, tropical wetlands and crystal-clear glacier lakes, colourful lagoons and rivers teeming with fish: these are just some of the many motifs captured by Freiburg-based photographer Michel Roggo.

The special exhibition AQUA – Photography by Michel Roggo presents a beautiful underwater world awash with light and provides an insight into exotic flora and fauna. Take a trip around the world and get inspired by the beauty of Gorner Glacier and Verzasca, Lake Baikal or the Iguazú Waterfalls.

Michel Roggo is an internationally recognised freshwater photographer who was won multiple awards. In 2010, he launched his ambitious 'Freshwater Project’ to draw attention to endangered aquatic habitats. Seven years and 40 waterbodies later, Michel Roggo completed his project in 2017.

Around 900 photos and ‘making-of’ films document the long and adventurous expeditions on which Michel Roggo embarked throughout his 'Freshwater Project'.

Opening special exhibition AQUA

6.30 p.m. Free entrance

Bears and crocodiles, tropical forests and fathomless caves, glacial lakes and rivers teeming with fish, these are just some of the plethora of predominantly sub-aqueous motifs captured by Freiburg-based photographer Michel Roggo. Setting out to take pictures of all the main water types on the planet, Roggo launched his ambitious "Freshwater Project" eight years ago and has already photographed 40 different freshwater types.

The exhibition 'AQUA. Photographs of Michel Roggo' presents a beautiful underwater world awash with light, giving us an insight into its often exotic flora and fauna. 'AQUA' is an exhibition of the Natural History Museum Freiburg.
