“Gerda’s New Bikini” by Photographer Damaris Riedinger

German photographer Damaris Riedinger documents the subculture of sunbathers at a strandbad (a public beach on a gated compound) in Lake Constance, South Germany. Currently based in Vancouver, Riedinger attempts to convey the significance of one 100 year-old compound for those who frequent it. As she explains:

“It’s this particular beach that creates a sense of identity for its visitors and familiarity between its regulars. This goes as far as knowing that Gerda has a new bikini or the fact that Herbert prefers to have beef and pork loaf for lunch. The images capture the pride and personality of the regulars while underlining the colourful forms and shapes found at the old beach.”
