Cathrin Schulz : “Poolside” Series (Photography)

::

POOLSIDE is a series which is part of a long-term project called AUTHENTI©ITY of AMERICA documenting my vision of America as a German Photographer. Immersing myself in the urban scenery of the United States I perceive its authenticity and diverseness’ and embrace it in soul places. With POOLSIDE I sense a piece of Atlanta’s soul, discovering a part of its culture. The series’ subject matter is a community pool. A location of diverse social environments. It was a collective, public experience to capture it. The energy of the pools, a flat continuation of water obscuring what’s below the surface, was a distinctive emotional atmosphere, sensed intuitively: solitary, still and private. [artist statement]

I spend a lot of time finding the perfect place, the purest energy. I return several times to capture an unusual situation – without staging a setting. The images are captured with one and the same camera, no filter, usually short exposure times, same lens. Through the formal reduction and accentuation of particular colors in my photographs, and by using a reduced visual language, careful choice of motifs and precise cropping of the image, I condense singular moments in their own authenticity. The clarity is intensified further through digital manipulation. By heightening contrasts, colors and saturations, I allow individual details and structures that would otherwise escape our attention to emerge in palpable relief. The black background provides a blank canvas, and isolates the subject from time and distance. The aesthetic qualities of my subject matter are placed in the foreground. ~ [ Cathrin Schulz : Process ]
