Boxing Day or New Year’s Day swims have become very popular in the UK in recent years. The event at Deal has noticeably grown since I stated photographing it in 2015. There is a charity fundraising aspect to the event but also something quite strange in the sight of so many people dressing up to plunge into a cold sea in winter.
Over 150 photos taken over about an hour at this event, with this large composite image made from over 100 of these photos. This builds a story of the many incidents happening over this time while also showing the scale of the event.
