Abandoned swimming pools photographed by Carlo Van de Roer make for lonely landscapes. Cracked foundations, bent ladders, rusty steel, rocks and weeds enhance the neglected scenes,which were once undoubtedly the location of much summer fun.

Despite their derelict condition, the swimming pools in Van de Roer’s 'Watermark' collection still manage to convey a feeling of optimism. In each photo, a glimmer of resilience can be found; ocean waves, forests, small blossoms and splashes of bright colours give a sentiment of hopefulness and anticipation.
