I live in Brighton, England, a city known for its vibrant seaside atmosphere and diverse community. Every day, regardless of the weather, people gather along the coast to swim in the chilly waters of the English Channel. It’s a tradition that embodies the spirit and resilience of Brighton’s residents.

On one particularly cold day, I ventured out to capture this unique aspect of our local culture. These photographs showcase the determination and camaraderie of those who brave the icy temperatures to enjoy a swim. The images reflect not only the beauty of Brighton’s coastline but also the unwavering enthusiasm of its people.
