David Maixner photography portfolio, photographer from Czech Republic

Water Towers is series of artificially lit objects in landscape, photographs of high seats, which are visually unified, reference to concept of Bechers, whose distinctive typology of objects is important part of history of photography.

I struggled to express this subject using actual visual trends, which are used very often these days.

Photographs are different from
those of Bechers in many ways, they are in color, lit by artificial light, different format, captured on different medium but still they remind us of the famous works by comparative taxonomy of small utility objects. I was interested not only in observing those differences and similarities, but also in originality of Bechers’ idea in comparison to routine of digital camera and artificial light.
