Water without Salt
by Ing­mar Nol­ting and Arne Piepke

With its length of 1,515 kilo­metres Kura (geor­gian: Mtkwari) is the lon­gest river in the Cau­ca­sus region. It rises in Tur­key, cros­ses Geor­gia and drains into the Caspian Sea in Azer­bai­jan. With their work “Water without Salt” Arne Piepke and Ing­mar Björn Nol­ting docu­men­ted their jour­ney along the river in Geor­gia – along the unde­fi­ned bor­ders of Asia and Europe. Their pho­to­graphs tell sto­ries about the daily life, the cul­tu­ral and eth­ni­cal dif­fe­ren­ces along the river and their per­so­nal encoun­ters. They met far­mers, unem­ployed people, for­mer refu­gees, pen­sio­ners and an Imam – com­mon people tel­ling them about their life, their sto­ries and dreams along Kura.
