De foto's zijn genomen in the London Fields Lido. Waller was gefascineerd door het verschil in zwemkledij en normale kledij. Ze zette mensen in beide op de foto. De foto's buiten in de kou, waar de stoom van het bad slaat, zijn het indrukwekkendst.

Beautiful pictures by Madeleine Waller, a London stationed photographer. She portaited people near the London Field Lido in their normal and swimming clothes. Two years ago a selection was posted in the VK Magazine, and I was reminded of them by the current cold. Especially the pictures near the pool, with the rising steam, cought my eye.
