In Franck Bohbot’s pictures, everything looks set to become a memorable film location: glass lamps shine in his spaces, the floor is recently waxed, natural lighting flows through the outsized windows and the classy ceilings speak to the enormity of architecture and history. His series also feature the most stunning pools in Paris. That’s because, if there’s one thing that fascinates this Parisian-born photographer it’s “water and the way it interacts with people and their built environment”.
The pools shot by Bohbot have mostly covered spaces that seem designed to coincide with the use of their colours: yellow, orange, white, and blue. His Swimming Pool series won the International Photography Award in 2013 and caught the eye of leading professionals in the world of art, fashion, and journalism. Today he documents life in New York, the city where he lives, and is a regular contributor to The New York Times.
