Introducing Lianne Milton and The "Big Pool"

03 December 2014

Panos Pictures' Lianne Milton joins Sony Global Imaging Ambassadors this week, debuting her #FutureofCities project from Rio de Janeiro - The "Big Pool".

The Piscinão de Ramos is an artificial beach and chlorinated swimming pool along the very polluted Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro’s North Zone. The pool attracts about 80,000 visitors over one single, sweltering hot weekend. It is loud, colorful and crowded and a crowd favorite.

Lianne explores the pool in all its both joy and controversy in her first assignment for #FutureofCities.
