np (96pp), profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Designed by Ed Templeton. "The Swimming Pool" is a new photographic essay from California-based street photographer Deanna Templeton. The series was born after an impromptu nude swimming-pool shoot of husband and artist Ed Templeton, which spurred an eight-year journey in the study of light, expression and the enigma of water. Shooting entirely on color, black and white, and Polaroid film, Templeton sent friends into the pool to be photographed in their truest form. Unlike her street photography, in which subjects were often strangers, Templeton found that creating these portraits required more intimacy and connection - a feeling that is apparent throughout every image in the series. As Ed Templeton writes in his afterword to this volume, "the nude swimmer is floating in a void of quiet solitude, the gentle pressure of being underwater enclosing her form like a baby in a womb and nothing exists outside of this world. A lone figure amidst a sea of blues and greys and frenetic sunlight performing a solitary dance for the photographer above, choosing movements and directions, twisting and swooping, contorting and expelling breaths painting a picture of form and light together". A brand new, pristine example additionally BOLDLY SIGNED by Deanna Templeton.
