The Swimmers, le nuotatrici sincronizzate di Emma Hartvig | Collater.al 2

There is a whole world after the curtain, when the lights go out and the music ceases to be the background of breathtaking performances.
In The Swimmers, Swedish photographer Emma Hartvig tells exactly this moment, letting her lens be led by a group of a bit retro synchronized swimmers.

The Swimmers captures the Aqualillies of Los Angeles as they perform their choreography, their routines, while letting themselves be lulled by moments of rest and play.
Using color and black and white photography, Hartvig presents a series of images that emulate a past era, enhanced by the group’s retro swimsuits.

Through her work, she celebrates the unity, strength and elegance of performance, showing a usually hidden perspective of their elegant diving practice.
