Backyard Oasis

Part of the Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., 1945-1980 regional initiative, Backyard Oasis examines swimming pools in photographs from 1945 to 1982 as visual analogs of the ideals and expectations associated with Southern California.
As a private setting, the backyard pool became a stage for sub-culture rituals and clandestine desires.

That first pool is amazing! We have been looking at pool companies in PA to see if we can find a design that we like. Thanks so much for sharing these couple of ideas.
