Deanna Templeton: The Swimming Pool

Text by Ed Templeton.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Deanna Templeton: The Swimming Pool</I>.The Swimming Pool is a new photographic essay from California-based street photographer Deanna Templeton (born 1969) that departs from her usual style to offer an expressive, intimate view of the human form underwater. The series was born after an impromptu nude 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 to be photographed in their truest form. 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, which show strong, liberated individuals, confident and at ease in their most beautiful and vulnerable moments. As Ed Templeton writes in his afterword to this volume, "the nude swimmer is floating in a void of quiet solitude, the gentle pressure of being underwater enclosing her form like a baby in a womb and nothing exists outside of this world. A lone figure amidst a sea of blues and greys and frenetic sunlight performing a solitary dance for the photographer above, choosing movements and directions, twisting and swooping, contorting and expelling breaths painting a picture of form and light together." The Swimming Pool offers a deep and inspiring view of the human form.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Blisss Magazine

Ashley Macomber

...in her work is compassion and empathy, and a deep connection with humanity that can be painful at times.

Badlands Magazine

‘The Swimming Pool’ delivers a proud and absolute stripped vision of the human body, presented through wondrous shapes and romantic hues, without limits.

Juxtapoz Magazine

not only a testament to the power of restraint, but to the beauty of human form and space.

i-D

Alice Newell-Hanson

Like bugs in amber, the swimmers' bodies are caught in languid momentary poses indefinitely. But far from being static, they seem to drift freely through an endless summer.

Photo-Eye Blog

Johnson J Christopher

a 'quiet meditation similar to the act of swimming' and being alone underwater.

Ed Templeton on Deanna Templeton's The Swimming Pool

Ed Templeton on Deanna Templeton's The Swimming Pool

"A young woman molts from her clothes, which fall to the concrete around her ankles, and steps to the edge of the pool without pretense leaving a small pile of material behind. The air surrounds her body with a flutter and the sun falls on foreign skin with a tickle. The water is still, and her figure is reflected inversely along with the surrounding wooden fence, plants, the neighbor’s house—an alternative universe waiting to be explored. She extends a toe softly down to the glassy sheet, just breaking the surface and emitting a mild sonar ripple from the point of impact. The surface water locks to her skin as it envelops her body shattering the mirror image into shards of undulating trapezoids as the water is displaced and scatters, sending chain reactions all directions that crash to the edge with a splash and back again in a chaos of energy." - From Ed Templeton's text in The Swimming Pool, Deanna Templeton's's new collection of Southern California underwater nudes. continue to blog
