The pictures in this book came into being in the Jura, along the border between Switzerland and France. They span a geographical area between Basel and Geneva. The Jura is a mountain range of limestone. During the Jurassic geological period this limestone was deposited in a shallow sea. Later, in conjuncton with the folding of the Alps, were formed into what is now called the Jura range. The word Jura(ssic) is simultaneously a geographical and a geological term, as well as the name of a geological period. The word is originally Celtic and means "Forest".
The word "exposé" also has serveral meanings. It stands for:
"Being exposed to the elements", "exposing films" and "summary" of my impressions from hikes and working stays in the Jura.
