Nudes in the pool in pictures of Dianna Templeton
August 7, 2018
For eight years, Californian photographer Dianna Templeton spent the hot summer days shooting her friends in her own pool.
Dianna Templeton (Deanna Templeton) - a street photographer from California. Working on this project, she moved away from her usual genre to present an expressive and intimate view of human forms under water.
The series began by chance, with an improvised shooting of a naked husband in the pool. She liked the way the sun flashed over the swimmer's body, and suddenly the light broke in the water. This was followed by eight years of photographing friends, and then friends of friends. Dianna shot on Polaroid, color and black and white film.
The footage Templeton turned into a photo book "Pool". From the epilogue: “A naked swimmer is directed into a secluded void, the soft pressure of the underwater world embraces her, like a child in the womb and it seems that nothing exists outside this world.A lone figure in a sea of blue and gray and violent sunlight, performing a solitary dance for a photographer who looks from above, takes movements and directions, wriggles, soars and exhales, drawing a picture of form and light. ”
