Sally Tertini's childhood was spent exploring the bay that was her backyard in suburban Sydney. Steve Pollard spent his early years discovering the magical woodlands of Dartmoor in England. From the moment they met in Sydney, every spare moment was spent wild swimming. As friends began asking for recommendations, they set out to uncover and photograph the region's most amazing places to swim. This odyssey led them to re-imagine the way they see Sydney, and to fall in love with its wild places. They are now married with a baby daughter.
