Marianne Nix is interested in legacy, history and time. The Men’s Pond Highgate has existed on the Heath since the 18th Century and men have exclusively been fortunate enough to swim here since then. Others who may not dive into and swim in this refreshing pool can merely glimpse longingly from afar at the enjoyment of those gamboling about in the water.

These prints are individually hand inked onto a paper plate using a sponge. The paper plate is then passed through the hand press along with damp Somerset paper. Numbered, dated and signed on the front.
