The civic swimming pool belongs to a council in South East London. It is open throughout the winter and attracts a small group of swimmers in the evenings when the vapor from the heated pool hovers visibly over the water’s surface. In the artificial light, the pool’s tiled edge and safety strips with the plastic items left at its side create a dramatic presence which contrasts strangely with the misty blue rising from the pool itself.
