The Slovakian Photographer Plays with Color and Space
When empty, swimming pools offer calming platitudes, and photographer Maria Svarbova found inspiration in the wide expanses of still water, neat arrays of tiles, and uniform lines of bleachers. Her style is simple, straightforward, and highly structured. Svarbova employs the human form sparingly, acting only as a graphic element in the pristine images of Socialist-era Slovakian pools. Cast in pastel hues, the rhythms and repetitions of the spaces is on full display.
