Eye on Texas: TX Open Swim

Eye on Texas: TX Open Swim

While a swim on a hot day can be a saving grace for anyone, for Texans, the intense heat makes the satisfaction of finding great water that much sweeter. My ‘TX Open Swim‘ project is a peek at the faces of people at my favorite (sometimes secret) Texas swimming haunts, and the pilgrimages to them. I try to take viewers to Texas’ unexpected oases to share in our most beloved resource.
