Riverboom is a team founded by war reporters during a moonless night in North-West Afghanistan in a repugnant valley, full of wolves, robbers and Talibans running away. It’s the valley in which the Boom river flows. Riverboom has published several collections of travel guides: the Baechtold’s Best Visual collection containing pictures of uncommon destinations like North Pole, Afghanistan or Louvreland. The Versus collection organizes visual competitions.
The Switzerland deserved and gained the competition about the nicest barb in Switzerland versus the World, but lost the contest on rubbish cans for dogs in Florence versus the World. But, above all, Riverboom produced the projects of his members: a couchsurfing world tour, a film in Nollywood, an exhibition of more than 700 posters sticked to the walls of Florence.
The Riverboom are Claude Baechtold, Paolo Woods, Serge Michel, Gabriele Galimberti and Edoardo Delille.
 
After Athens versus Sparte, Oxford versus Cambridge, and many more, the Riverboom photographers have a ringside seat when it comes to the eternal competition between Deauville and Trouville-sur-Mer. Starting from the most banal pictures and the most traditional stereotypes, they have staged a visual competition that tells that we just exist in front of our opposite, that we are two essential and irreplaceable parts of the same thing. The yin and yang concept has something to do with Normandy then.
 
Exhibition in the Court of Pompeian Baths – Car park of the foreshore and on the diving board of the Olympic swimming pool.
