I found LA-based Tamar Levine‘s photography while looking through the winners of the The Look Photography Contest. I love her work, but her series, The Swimmers, captivated me like nothing else.

According to Tamar, the shoot was inspired by a synchronized swim team in Southern California called the Hollywood Bathing Beauties and Esther Williams movies. I can definitely see the influence! The models Tamar used were actually real members of the swim team, which I think is pretty cool. Tamar also mentioned that the day of the shoot it was freezing and pouring rain. It’s funny how from upon first glance, you would never know! …And then you take a closer look and realize it’s raining in the pictures! I quite like the moodiness the weather gave these images though.
