Photographs of water surfaces showing their graphical beauty that is created by the surface structure itself and accompanying reflection of color, depending on current wind conditions and the surrounding nature.
“In a series called “Water surfaces”, Steffen Faisst presents his abstract photographs, which sometimes resemble aerial photographs. Photographs capturing waves marching in well-ordered horizontal patterns remind of paintings of a Mark Rothko, Gerhard Richter or Poul Gernes. Other pictures show the more chaotic aspect of the surface of waves, creating more dynamic and abrupt patterns that may resemble the hectic registrations of a seismograph, or graceful choreographic dancing steps. This is also indicated by Steffen Faisst by the titles he has given to his pictures. Also here, the photographs shine in many beautiful color hues, from ultramarine blue over golden to silver-gray.”
