swim club

November 6, 2020

I’ve followed photographer, Kara Rosenlund‘s work for a few years now, often drawn to her beach scenes and beautiful portraits. Today, I came across a wonderful series, spotlighting a community of nonagenarians who swim daily at sunrise at Currumbin Beach. I found the images, and the idea of this daily ritual, so inspiring. I can’t imagine a more invigorating way to begin each day. Today, one of the swimmers, Wallaby Mick Barry drowned after being caught in a rip, making these images even more poignant. I saw that his daughter had left a note on Rosenlund’s Instagram feed, asking for the photo of her Dad. What a lovely image to remember him by.
