Photoessay: Poolside Wetropolis

Things are better down where it's wetter

Posted by Mitch Parker

Poolside etiquette gets a modern revision in this series from Genevieve Walsh. Shot in and around a closed pool then contrasted with city streets at night, this series taps in to rebellion. Walsh balances light, water, and the resulting reflections to give us a sense of youth.

This series was created in partnership with Converse to celebrate the launch of their Counter Climate Range. ACCLAIM commissioned three photographers to create essays around the theme ‘Wetropolis: a world that’s damp, intriguing, and beautiful. In this world the wet isn’t a negative—rather it’s a positive’. The Converse Counter range is available online now.
