'Lakes and reservoirs'

Brandt’s photography about American lakes and water reservoirs has become a symbol for structural negligence in which money weighs more than health and safety for humans and nature. The artist develops his photos with the water from the pictured lakes. The water reacts with the developing liquid and affects the paper, which results into a colorful but destructive tableau at the same time. His work shows the shaky chemical balance that is the base of the photography as well as the preservation of nature.
