Gil Rigoulet, Molitor

In 1985, the French photographer Gilles Rigoulet spent his summer working and playing at the famous Art Deco pool Molitor in the Sixteenth Arrondissement of Paris. Photographing both above and below the water, Rigoulet captured all angles of the pool and its visitors in an elegantly graphic black-and-white style. The photographs exist not only as artistic objects, but also as historical documents—they’re some of the only images of the original pool and its patrons before it closed in 1989. Now, a year after the pool itself reopened, the (M) editions has publish Rigoulet’s series in a limited-edition monograph, bringing us back to the summer of 1985 at pool Molitor. (VOGUE)

"My images speak of a quasi-mythical place where a motley crowd thronged, joyful and undisciplined. I was walking with my camera freely, without any discomfort. It was the time of pleasure. We flirted, chirped, daydreamed there. Coming out of numbered cabins, our eyes met and we went for a drink at Pacific Molitor to prolong the magic. The pool was the life!" Gil Rigoulet
