About Swimming Pool

Swimming Pool is a project that erupted from the photographer’s interest in the the public space of swimming pools. Through her striking, cinematic photographs she hunts for beauty in the geometry and the scenery of the Socialist Era of Slovakian locations.

The images are full of  vibrant colours and highly controlled compositions. The result is a dream-like atmosphere that elevate the setting, transforming it into a futuristic environment of an almost artificial nature.
