Work from Nine Swimming Pools behind Broken Glass.
“I found some photos of bathers in swimming pools in some old Yugoslavian tourist brochures. They were taken at more or less the same time American artist Edward Ruscha took his photographs of swimming pools for his book Nine Swimming Pools and a Broken Glass (1968). The Los Angeles pools were in the yards of luxurious homes, private and empty. The Yugoslavian pools were their exact opposite.” – Tanja Lazetic
