LIKE THE CONFINES OF A SONNET

Newsprint
289mm x 380mm
2019



Like the Confines of a Sonnet is a newsprint publication consisting of photographs that I took of 8 different public pools around Dublin. Poet Jean Strickland said of the swimming pool ‘The confines of the pool are like the confines of a sonnet, its what you achieve within it.’ Inspired by this statement, the publication is divided into fourteen spreads to replicate the form of a Sonnet, with each spread containing a line of the sonnet Swimming Sonnet by Sharon Brogan.
