Inspired by the sterile swimming pools, built during the Socialist Era of her native country Slovakia, photographer Maria Svarbova has created a series of striking, yet equally sterile images. “The figures are mid-movement, but there is no joyful playfulness to them,” says Sarbova. I can’t help but be intrigued by the colors and the frozen composition – wouldn’t these be ideal for a swimwear campaign?
