Pools from above by Stephan Zirwes

Le piscine dall'alto di Stephan Zirwes | 1

For an architecture and design lover, pools aren’t just places to cool off and have fun but also places to observe and sometimes admire.

For a photographer, instead, to these characteristics, it adds the one of the subject to be immortalized: the German photographer Stephan Zirwes knows something about that on his last photographic series shot from above and dedicated to pools. Comfortably seated on a helicopter, the privileged position let him photograph them with a Hasselblad 50 MP camera from an uncommon perspective, then edit his shots on Photoshop to remove any form of visive distraction.

Ordinary places become in one photo different, new, charming for minimal lovers, a temptation for the common mortals that are counting the days to the vacation.
