Adrian Thornton, Swimming at Sunrise (People and Portrait 2019)

The ocean pool in Shellharbour is an integral part of the community that brings the local swimmers together. In these photos they are up before sunrise to get in some laps before the day begins. You don't see wetsuits or board shorts here. These swimmers have been swimming in the ocean pool for years so are unfazed by the cold water and are happy to get out there in their Speedos.
