painted by the rays of the sun, reflections of water, on polaroid. the swimming pool is a new poetic photographic essay from california-based street photographer deanna templeton that departs from her usual style to offer an expressive, intimate view of the human form underwater. the series was born after an impromptu 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 and black-and-white film and polaroid, templeton sent friends into the pool. 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, a figure amidst a sea of blues and greys and frenetic sunlight performing a dance.
