Photographs Show The Decaying Beauty of Abandoned Swimming Pools

Gigi Cifali's "Absence of Water" is a photo project documenting derelict swimming pools in England. Having been built in the late Victorian period, public lidos and baths were at the peak of their popularity in the 1930s. Gradually, living conditions and tastes have changed, resulting in a drop of attendances, leaving the public pools uneconomical to run. Many fell into decay and many were demolished. Symbols of civic and architectural pride in Victorian times, today only a handful of them remain as a representation of bygone era.
