Who said pools are just for swimming?

Or, for that matter, just for water? Shortly before the long-anticipated Olympic-sized pool was filled at the downtown YMCA, dsm contributing photographer Ben Easter saw it as something entirely different: an intriguing setting to showcase fashion. The empty pool’s lines and patterns, as well as the space’s brightly colored walls, turned out to be a perfect backdrop for spring styles. (For a behind-the-scenes peek at Easter’s inspirations and how the shoot came together, turn to page 22.)
