We featured Madeleine Waller for her photographs of swimmers at London Fields Lido way back in 2010, so you can imagine our delight to find that these very charming images have been published in a book all of their own, entitled East London Swimmers, by Hoxton Mini Press.
And that’s not even all! They also got filmmaker Miles Langley on board to create a short film to accompany the book’s release, proving another outlet through which to tell the incredibly poignant story of one swimmer, Nick, who took up swimming at the outdoor pool to cure his fear of water following a narrow escape from the 2004 tsunami in Thailand. Miles’ treatment of his subject is sensitive and touching, creating the context for the lives of Madeleine’s swimmers without trying to steal any of the thunder.
