It is interesting to think of people who essentially lead two lives, which the Secret Life of Swimmers photo series shows so well. By focusing on this one sport and/or hobby, this series hones in on how you may never know every side of a person, but the fact that he or she can share a common interest really goes a long way. In fact, it can even bring people together, putting them all on the same level.
Shot by photographer Judy Starkman for the city of Culver City, the Secret Life of Swimmers photo series was inspired by an incident in a locker room. Starkman saw a high-powered woman transform from a businessperson to athlete in matter of minutes. Intrigued, she decided to find out what other swimmers did for a living.
