A deeply indulgent photographic documentation of my exploration of the Llyn's, pools and rivers of Snowdonia. With around 250 lakes alone, what started off as a small project in my spare time, has turned into finding and dipping my toes in more than 400 permanent bodies of water. I realise it could take me years to complete and has become an all-encompassing life's work.


I have long been unconcerned with distance, time and temperatures, fuelled by self-possession, longing, indulgence, and obsession... interested in equal measure by discovery, creativity, and activity, I'm ever searching to swim, capture and share that ultimate abyss. 


For written notes on each swim see the link to my blog below.
