The Outdoor Pool
As Bertolt Brecht used the distancing effect in the theater, it can also be applied to photography. This work shows outdoor pools in autumn and winter. Instead of happiness, vitality and social gathering, there is suddenly emptiness, silence and desolation in the foreground. The attention is directed solely to the architecture and the different colours of the water, the pools. The stage is considered without the action. This alienation of the known situation is to encourange and provoke reflection in one’s life.
