Serpentine Swimmers Club

Lens Culture... Serpentine Swimmers Club - photos by Andrew Buurman. "...The Serpentine Swimmers Club is a group of about 40 hearty people of all ages and all walks of life who meet each weekend at an urban lake in London's Hyde Park to swim and race in near-freezing waters.
British photographer Andrew Buurman swam with the group (once), and then returned often to photograph these people doing what they feel driven to do. The result, I think, is a remarkable testimony to the accomplishments of people who willfully defy the deathly cold by celebrating their own vigorous bodies, the joy of burning muscles, and the satisfaction of not surrendering to aging bodies nor to the creature comforts of modern day life."
