A Photographic Encounter with Monastery and Island
Lying at the western end of the Untersee, Werd Island is also washed by the waters of Lake Constance in Switzerland, which a few hundred metres away flows into the High Rhine. People have been coming to the island since time immemorial, using it as a place of dwelling and religious worship.
Photographer Marco Zedler spent several months exploring this remarkable setting between nature, civilization and spiritual life. Presented here for the first time are the resulting landscape photos and his personal impressions of daily monastic life.
