The picture probably shows a scenery in the swimming pool. Children playing in the foreground, silhouettes of two women in the background. Miroslav Tichý was a Czech photographer who documented thousands of women in his hometown Kyjov with self-made cameras made of cardboard and tin cans. The focus of his aesthetics lies on imperfection, thus distorting, spotting, poorly exposed his pictures, and not only through the given possibility of his primitive equipment.
