Title unavailable, please email for information.
Debbi DiMaggio has created a splash with her first book, contained beauty: photography, reflections & swimming pools. Inspiring, breathtaking and honest -- contained beauty is much more than a beautiful collection of photographs.

It is a visual journey that begins with "who you are in order to know where you are going." By weaving her DiMaggio writer's flare throughout the chapters in this book, Debbi takes readers through a photographic excursion to some of the world's most stunning swimming pools. By honestly seeing in her own reflection as to who she has become, Debbi reaches out to help others living "contained and without joy." Following the Taoist Proverb, No one can see their reflection in running water. It is only in still water that we can see, Debbi encourages all to take time with this artful collection of retro, luxury, and modern swimming pools and come away inspired.

Printed by Four Colour Print Group, the 168-pages in this coffee table book are filled with exploding colors and dramatic images by photographers from around the world. Debbi's definition of art: Architecture+Landscape+Swimming Pool=Inspired Beauty.
Debbi DiMaggio is a native of Piedmont, California. She has a sense of wonder and passion for life that runs deep in her family.
