For our latest group show, we invited you to share your photographs of abandoned pools. Curated by Alison Zavos, Feature Shoot’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief, this final selection captures the unexpected—and often unseen—beauty of the pool forsaken. Where active swimming pools are manicured to appeal to the tastes of their owners, the neglected pool surrenders itself to a feral, and at times sinister, sort of loveliness. Here, we find pools left to the wind, those filled in, and those trampled by time, and yet throughout, a flicker of vitality still lingers.
