NUOTO DA SOLA (I SWIM ALONE): BRI HAMMOND
14 – 27 AUGUST 2019

Nuoto da sola (I swim alone) is a collection of photos from the seaside city of Rimini, Italy. Along 15 kilometres of sand, umbrellas and beach lounges are numbered and sectioned by colour. Late in the day, they lie abandoned as the air cools and the sun sinks to the horizon.

Single for the first time in my adult life, travelling solo was my final test to prove my own autonomy. Whilst I often felt awkward drinking, eating or sightseeing by myself, I always found solace in swimming in the ocean alone.
