Review 
  
"Troeller's book . . . melds sensuousness with a passion for investigation-photojournailism seen through an artist's eyes."--Lorraine Korman, American Spa magazine "Truly, angels sing in these pictures, amid intimations of another world--as if you can feel people descending into their (deeper) selves, even as they step out of their bodies into some other, lighter, forms that seem to shadow them."--Pico lyer  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
Healing Waters is a luminous collection of images of healing water therapies at the world's great spas. Linda Troeller's photographs, taken over a period of ten years, are more symbolic than descriptive; through a subtle use of color and blurred motion, these images capture the human form in communion with water, in a state of sublime, often ecstatic, immersion. The treatments that Troeller observes, and with which she herself experiments, are the subject of these sensuous photographs, which place the viewer at the heart of a revitalizing process of rebirth and renewal, the ultimate goal of alternative water therapies. From Montecatini, Italy, to the baths of Baden-Baden, Germany, and Beppu, Japan, Troeller's photographs take the viewer on a wide-ranging and transformative journey.
