Robert Götzfried“My pictures are created when public places have freed themselves of daily activities. Then these places show their cold beauty, symmetry and architectural precision.”

Robertz Götzfried’s photographs are visual equations, which, as he puts it, always work out. May he photograph pools, bowling alleys or a tube station; in his work one can always find grids and symmetries. In his photographs places that are normally guided by noisy confusion turn into pictures of mathematical order. He photographs places when nobody else is present as he wants to show these places beyond their common functionality.
