Sea Point Pool 1979
Edition Size : 12
"The iconic Sea Point Pool in Cape Town is a complex consisting of an Olympic-sized pool, two splash pools for children, and a fully equipped springboard diving pool. They are filtered sea water pools, and majestically overlook the Atlantic Ocean. It was built circa 1930.
As a young university student, and for many years thereafter, I, together with a group of friends, was fortunate enough to spend the summer holidays in this idyllic setting. The Sea Point Pool, together with the Clifton beaches, were the setting of never ending days of sun and laughter. My involvement with photography was at this stage well established, and the Sea Point Pool was a magnet of great fascination."
On Sea Point Pool 1979:
"I can still clearly remember the day I took this shot. With my Leica fixed on my tripod, I watched with endless fascination the changing patterns of humanity, a kaleidoscope of fun in the sun. I was completely oblivious to all that was going around me, and when the “pattern" was right I took three frames."
