Photography by Malcolm Saul. © Malcolm Saul 2011
I observe the way people behave at beaches and swimming pools, the clothes they wear, the stuff they have with them, the physical positions they adopt, the social interaction, the intimacy, the colour, the light, the landscape and the water, the sand, pebbles and stones, the tiles and chrome, the beautiful and the grotesque – it’s a fascinating and endlessly changing scene which goes on everyday all over the world.
The more intimate images can be risky to capture without causing offence or getting into trouble so I try to blend into the scene taking my time and sometimes using family and friends as decoys. They are voyeuristic and I sometimes feel like a thief, stealing personal things that don’t belong to me.
