Description

Twenty years after the initial publication of Pools, and its return to print in 2007, Kelly Klein brings new perspective to a subject that continues to epitomize status and style with the publication in October of the all-new Pools: Reflections.
 
Inspired to capture evolving tastes in architecture, design, art, fashion, and photography, Klein has assembled the most evocative images of extraordinary swimming pools around the world, with an emphasis, in this volume, on color photography that best illustrates contemporary pool design and its integration into cutting-edge architecture and breathtaking landscapes.
 
In Pools: Reflections Klein explores the artistry of pools from examples of their appearance in David Hockney’s art, to pools decorated with sculptures and installations by artists such as James Turrell, Tom Sachs, Robert Rauschenberg, and Frank West. Filtered through the lenses of photographers including Steven Klein, Bruce Weber, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Juergen Teller these images vary from examples of the pool as architecture within the landscape, to sensual images that evoke the enduring and undeniable appeal of this potent symbol of the good life.
