Wild Water is a photography project exploring open water swimming in the UK by award winning photographer Christopher Lanaway, who took our October issue’s cover shot.

Christopher is travelling around the UK meeting and photographing outdoor swimmers. “I’m looking to travel around the country photographing the people that partake in wild swimming,” said Chris, “You can follow the progress on Instagram @wildwaterproject.”


If you or your group of swimming buddies would like to get involved and be part of the project, contact Chris on

“Some people I have come across already are up to some pretty crazy swimming adventures,” said Chris.
