SWIMMING POOL by Maria Svarbova
By Maria Svarbova
The “in the Swimming Pool” is Maria’s largest and continuing series. Sparked by a hunt for interesting location in Slovakia, her fascination with the space of public swimming pools contributed to developing her visual style. Sterile, geometric beauty of old pools, usually built in the Socialist Era, set the tone for these photographs. There is almost a theatrical quality to the highly controlled sceneries that Maria captures.
