In Swim 0197 (2013), a lone, male swimmer skims across the surface of a cenote’s black water, his arms and legs outstretched. The paleness of his skin contrasts markedly with the inky darkness of the water, which makes his body seem small and fragile. Further emphasizing this sense of his fragility are his dark swimming trunks, which blend into the color of the water itself. As such, his body appears fragmented—a nod, perhaps, to the pool’s grisly use as a site for ancient sacrifices. More playful is the scene Fleischer captures in Swim 9214 (2013). Here, the black of the water is interrupted by a multitude of swimmers, who churn up its surface into small waves that catch bright glints of sunlight. Standing out from this crowd is a woman in a crimson swimsuit, who floats calmly amid the motion-filled bathers.
