Marieke van der Velden – Swimming pools

Swimming pools from Benin, Liberia, Iraq, Kenya, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Jordania, Malawi and more.

Each pool has its own story. 

At one, the hoped-for tourists never came. At another, the tables are turned upside-down because the owner is Charles Taylor’s brother. One pool has just been restored after a war, while the other hasn’t been maintained since the president who owned it was murdered 30 years ago.

A simple concept with a powerfull and esthetic result. I am not a big fan of repetition, but in this case it does a good job.
