Poolside Pride

Using the iconic 1970 photograph Poolside Gossip by Slim Aarons as a starting point (shot at Palm Springs’ historic Kaufmann House by architect Richard Neutra, 1946), Tom Dolle created the collage POOLSIDE PRIDE by asking “what if eighteen of the most well-known historical LGBTQ+ icons got together poolside in Palm Springs?” The image was blown up as a digital perforated window film across the facade of Destination PSP for several weeks as part of the Palm Springs Pride celebration in November 2020 and 2021.
