Lightbodies by Karen Livesey from Zoe Burt on Vimeo.

Awarded a residency from the Heritage Lottery and Fusion at Brockwell Lido in 2010, Zoƫ invited swimmers to make life-size poolside portraits using an early form of photography called cyanotype, or blueprinting.

The success of the venture enabled it to travel to other historically significant lidos, and an exhibition of the portraits was held in Brixton Village in 2010.
