So we seem to have the hots for swimming pools this month from Franck Bohbot’s dramatically shot photographs of pools with perfectly still water to Malika Favre’s snazzy illustrations of sun-bleached bodies lounging around the pool. But here is something other; our favoured delights abandoned, decaying and stained with a nostalgia for a lost past.
Photographer Gigi Cifali’s series Absence of Water is a comment on the changing interests and economic state of society, taking traditional 1930s built pools that were once symbols of civic pride and capturing their demise. With the landscape around them overgrown as nature slowly encroaches or of barren enclosures, empty of the bodies that once filled them, they are slightly haunting, tinged with a sadness as though the echos of limbs splashing in water might still be heard.
