Celebrate Summer with 'The Swimming Pool in Photography'

This 1950s H. Armstrong Roberts photograph of an American woman sunbathing by the side of a pool is one of 200 vintage and contemporary images collected in Summertime Staff Favorite, The Swimming Pool in Photography. "Water is a metaphorical gift, of course," Francis Hodgson writes. "In mythology, it is routinely the place where transformation happens: sirens and selkies and mermaids and baptism and the birth of Venus… no need to hammer home the point… Even in the relative tameness of a pool, water is a gift to a photographer: it gives near-nudity, and it gives light, both at the same time. No wonder photographers love pools."
