Cold Water Swimmers Wanted at Brockwell Lido this Sunday

Photographer and cold water swimmer Michael Wharley has a little project: to do before-and-after shots of swimmers this Sunday. In case you don’t know him, I attach a photo of him clothed. He will be poolside this Sunday 26 November from pool opening at 7.45am to close at 12.15pm and would love to photograph you if you’re game. If you would like to contact him beforehand, his website is below.

Michael says: “I’ve loved the Lido for years and I want to shoot portraits of its diverse community of swimmers prepped for their swim, and then red/goosebumped and tingling afterwards, to share the apprehension, terror, numbing endurance, joy, exhilaration and release of an icy dip. In your Speedos or swimsuit, wetsuit or snuggly towel, begoggled and behatted, or clutching a flask in flipflops, it would only take a few minutes before and after your Sunday swim.”
