Pools, Hardback Book

Pools Hardback



Glamorous, seductive, and fun, made for lounging, frolicking, splashing, dipping, diving, floating, and escaping, swimming pools are symbols of both sport and leisure and conjure images of well-oiled bodies, colorful bikinis, and glimmering blue waters on hot summer days.

Muse to writers, artists, photographers, and filmmakers, the swimming pool's careless opulence is splashed across the pages of this book in gorgeous images by contemporary photographers.

In her second book for Rizzoli, curator, writer, and avid swimmer Lou Stoppard offers the promise of sunshine and the seduction of youth in her edit of some of the best contemporary swimming-pool photography. Organized by theme, from the glamour of the poolside party to the simple, meditative pleasure of being in the water, the selected photographs are as inspiring as they are moving.

Photographers whose images are featured in this book include Solve Sundsbo, Glen Luchford, Inez and Vinoodh, Ryan McGinley, Diana Markosian, Martin Parr, Martine Franck, Alex Webb, Coco Capitan, and Nick Knight.

This is the perfect gift purchase for photography fans, swimmers, and lovers of leisure.
