Are you actually f*cking serious, dude? As in, did you guys know this is the last regular article we’re going to bring you this year? I know! Where has the year gone? It’s frightening. But don’t fret – this doesn’t mean you’re not going to hear from us anymore. In the coming weeks, we will be bringing you roundups of the various topics and categories we cover on Yellowtrace, and give you the chance to catch up on 2018 and all the awesomeness we’ve shared together. But more about that in a minute.

In honour of the upcoming summer holidays in Australia (hooray!) I wanted to sign off on a summery note, with this fascinating image series of public swimming pools shot by Stuttgart-based photographer Stephan Zweires.

Zweires’ personal project began in 2015. He shot some of these images from the helicopter flying hundreds of meters above ground, which in 2016 scored him the 3rd prize in the Sony World Photography Award for architecture category. Nowadays he also shoots with a purpose-built drone, although at much lesser heights than flying over with a helicopter. During the post-production phase, the German artist manipulates the surrounding pool grounds, copying and pasting pool tiles into a uniform canvas that removes any distractions, in turn framing his images. This approach gives his work a surreal edge reminiscent of an illustration or an architectural render. Pretty cool, huh? I thought so too.

So… back to our impending end-of-year archives. Our annual roundups will run daily from Monday 17th December 2018 through to Friday 11th January 2019. Team Yellowtrace will be back on deck and resume our regular programme from Monday 14th January 2019.

On that note, thank you all so much for another fantastic year, and for tuning into our channels on a regular basis. I speak on behalf of the entire team when I say, we really do have the best audience going around. I sincerely hope you manage to have a well-deserved break with your loved ones over the Christmas/ New Year period.

I look forward to welcoming you back in 2019, refreshed and ready to kick butt together.

Love always,
Mama Yellowtrace xx
