About the artwork

Franck Bohbot has dedicated a major photographic series to Parisian swimming pools since 2012. From the Pontoise swimming pool to that of Amiraux or Butte-aux-Cailles, all three listed as historic monuments, his approach remains the same: to capture public places without people, in a systematic and frontal manner. Like the photographers of industrial installations, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Bohbot highlights the typology of the pools by showcasing their orderly arrangement and the architectural styles used, the lighting and colours of their interiors. His compositions are composed along a central perspective, revealing many vanishing points that give the photographs their great sense of depth. Franck Bohbot thus sheds light on a part of our heritage that is difficult to capture with the naked eye, since there are so many details to be discovered. The documenting of these details allows each of these swimming pools to be differentiated, rendering each one unique. These spaces where well-being and competitiveness often meet, constitute for many a primal and essential experience.
