In Pools: Reflections Klein explores the artistry of pools from examples of their appearance in David Hockney’s art, to pools decorated with sculptures installations by artists such as James Turrell, Tom Sachs, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank West. Filtered through the lenses of photographers including Steven Klein, Bruce Weber, Robert Mapplethorpe, Kim Sargent Juergen Teller these images vary from examples of the pool as architecture within the lscape, to sensual images that evoke the enduring undeniable appeal of this potent symbol of the good life.
