Los Angeles Public Swimming Pools


Over a 3 year period, I photographed the 57 Aquatics facilities operated by Los Angeles Citywide Aquatics. These include 50 pools, a beach, 3 camps, and 3 lakes. The goal of this project is to show the extensive nature of the aquatics program in Los Angeles as well as its vital role in each community it serves.


I am an avid swimmer and have swum at each of these sites. These pools are a vital part of my life and a vital part of the city of Los Angeles.


I would like to thank each lifeguard, pool manager, clerk, locker room attendant, and patron who helped make this project possible.
