This is a photo about people and the water. The form of people in the water. The surface of the water that deforms. It was important to have a swimming pool for this study. I found a man who put his swimming pools in Belgium at our disposition. I really like the reflections of the bodies of the water in this photo, as well as the disposition of the people which is not beach-like. The figures that emerge from the blue. Moreover, given that there were swimming pools with regular artificial waves, there was always a lot of movement. And within this movement there is this couple kissing at the bottom, the emblem of the photograph.
