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 is an idea factory, a producer and a publisher.
Riverboom publishes 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. A new collection called “Versus the World” opposes countries like Switzerland or cities like Florence to the rest of the world in a visual contest. This collection exists as books but also as an application for iPad and iPhone.
But foremost Riverboom produces the projects of its members, whether a world tour in couchsurfing, a film in Nollywood, a show made of more then 700 posters plastered on the walls of Florence.
