A new collection of Maria Svarbova's photographs from her Swimming Pools project.

In the initial set of images, we see models frozen in the composition, the swimmers are as smooth and cold as the pools tiles. The colors softly vibrate in a dream-like atmosphere. However, despite the retro setting, the pictures somehow evoke a futuristic feeling as well, as if they were taken somewhere completely alien. We now observe different strands of thematic content stemming from this original concept. Female empowerment, a more intimate view and relationship between models and the space around them and also Maria's artistic expression of movements in feminism and the BLM movement.

About this Author

Despite studying restoration and archeology, she found a medium for her artistic expression in photography. Since 2010, she has focused on developing her own photographic language, quickly gaining international recognition. Amongst awards, solo and group exhibitions, her work has been featured in Vogue, Guardian, Instagram, Forbes and many other publications. Highlights of her commercial work include commission for promotional poster dis played at the Taiwanese landmark, 101 skyscraper. Maria has developed a distinctive style early on departing from traditional portraits to focus on experimentation with space, color and atmosphere. Her interest in architecture and public spaces, usually build in the Socialist era, led her to create unique sceneries.
