‘East London Swimmers’ by Madeleine Waller. 96pp hardcover, quarter-bound cloth spine, gold foiled,145 x 205mm
East London Swimmers comprises more than 50 colour photographs of swimmers dressed for normal life and in their swimming gear. The images, all taken at the London Fields Lido, are combined with telling personal quotes and together they reveal the secret life of Hackney swimmers who brave all conditions to escape city life.
"I got into swimming after getting caught up in the tsunami in Thailand. I was on a family holiday when the wave came in and I managed to grab my son from his pram. When I returned home I had a fear of open water so I entered a race and my passion for swimming was born."
Having studied photo-journalism at the London College of Printing, Madeleine Waller’s work has been featured widely in major newspapers and magazines in the UK as well as numerous times in the National Portrait Gallery, London. Originally from Australia she lives in Hackney with her partner and three children.
This is the third edition.
