As a biologist and a nature photographer, I try to document those tiny elements present in our everyday nature environment, which often pass unperceived, and which may get a new bearing when taken out of their natural context. I am especially fascinated by water, a medium in constant movement, which can take an unlimited number of shapes and colours depending on wind conditions, on the angle of incidence of the sunlight, and on the colour and structure of the ground. By this, water creates unceasingly artistic master pieces that, however, mostly are too small and too short-lived to be admired during a walk at the beach. My photography aims at capturing these master pieces by freezing the moment in a close-up picture, in order to allow the beholder to admire this abstract expressionist art created by nature. My compositions show a naturalistic description of the object, but are put in an abstract context by means of selection, magnification and delimitation.

“Everybody can walk at a beach, a lakefront or a riverbank and take pictures. However, it requires a trained eye and an artist vision to take the right capture. A capture that is perfectly balanced in terms of color and composition. And Steffen Faisst can do this. … All photographs demonstrate a sense for picture composition, a feeling for color and an esthetical sensation, lifting them over those, most of us take with a camera. One needs to think and watch like an artist to present us with these photographs. With his pictures, Steffen Faisst opens our eyes for the beauty of nature.”
