Karine Laval: Poolscapes

Text by Claire Barliant.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Karine Laval: Poolscapes.'Poolscapes brings together two bodies of work—The Pool (2002–05) and Poolscapes (2009–12)—by French-born, Brooklyn-based photographer Karine Laval (born 1971), both focusing on the motif of the swimming pool. Presenting public pools in urban and natural environments throughout Europe and private pools in the US in two distinct sections, the book is arranged chronologically and shows an evolution in tone and depth, from the photographic to the painterly. The Pool series invites us into a sun-bleached public pool at midday, evocative of childhood memories and the experience of leisure and bathing. Gradually these geometric lines and familiar architectural structures give way to the abstract, often blurred shapes and colors of the Poolscapes pictures that oscillate between representation and abstraction. Here the pool becomes a metaphor, a mirror whose surface reflects the surrounding world but is also a gateway into a realm where bathers are distorted and fragmented.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Guardian

Tim Adams

With the help of a Portuguese swimming pool, French photographer Karine Laval recalls the summers of her youth.

Musee

Labanya Maitra

Laval’s photographs can bring a variety of emotions to the fore, but the one that stands out the most is the way it entices the reader to jump into the closest body of water. And stay there.

Feature Shoot

Sara Rosen

Through the eyes of Karine Laval, life by the pool becomes a fantastical escape from it all.

Summer seduction in Karine Laval's 'Poolscapes'

Summer seduction in Karine Laval's 'Poolscapes'

Just in time for the longest, warmest, haziest and laziest days of summer, French photographer Karine Laval's gorgeous new Steidl monograph, Poolscapes, released this week. It would be hard to imagine a more evocative book, filled with photographs that are both seductive and eerie, surreal and melancholy, in the words of essayist Claire Barliant. "Swimming pools, at least in hibernal regions, connote the fleeting, quicksilver days of summer; with their promise of cool relief from the heat, they offer ease, relaxation, and joy—feelings that are cruelly ephemeral." continue to blog
