Swimming Pools from Above, by Stephan Zirwes
Stephan Zirwes is a German photographer born in Sindelfingen. He is a member of the German Association of Freelance Photographers and he is focused on photography and visual arts. His work has been exhibited literally throughout the world from South Korea to St. Petersburg and from Dubai to Florida, USA. He has several awards most recent being the Hasselblad Masters Award and the gold and silver BFF Awards.
His latest project, another one of aerial photogrpaphy, is about swimming pools. Third article about swimming pools in EWAT, after Pool Divers by Mark Sanderst and Swimming Pool by Mária Švarbová, is an architectural artefact that most of us love.
Yet water becoming, and in certain areas of the world is, very important asset pools have a dual interpretation. “[…] these pools are reserved for private usage and are a massive waste of drinking water. Public pools can still be a symbol for the importance that water should be free and accessible to everyone.” Zirwes notes. This is important for everyone to understand the consequences using the pools. Zirwes work is impressive. Enjoy.
