Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Debbi DiMaggio has created a splash with her first book, contained beauty: photography, reflections and swimming pools. Inspiring, breathtaking and honest - contained beauty is much more that a beautiful collection of photographs.

It is a visual journey that begins with "know who you are in order to know where you are going." By weaving her DiMaggio writer's flair throughout the chapters of this book, Debbi takes readers through a photographic excursion to some of the world's most stunning swimming pools. By honestly seeing her own reflection as to who she has become, Debbi reaches out to help others living "contained lives." Following the Taoist proverb, "No one can see their reflection in running water. It is only in still water that we can see," Debbi encourages all to take time with this artful collection of retro, luxury and modern swimming pools and come away inspired.

Printed by the Four Colour Print Group, the 168 pages in this coffee table book are filled with exploding colors and dramatic images by photographers from around the world. Debbi's definition of art: Architecture + Landscape + Swimming Pool = Inspired Beauty.

Synopsis:

Debbi DiMaggio (of the famous family) has created a dazzling new book, titled Contained Beauty. This book is filled with award-winning photographs from around the world, beautifully enhanced by Debbi's words of wisdom. While the initial focus will be on exceptional pools, the images will capture much more. We hope to inspire all who read it. The book will highlight Ms. DiMaggio's star quality and life's journey, making a positive impact, and defining success . . . while acknowledging that "there is always something more to discover!"

Synopsis:

contained beauty is Debbi's first publication.

"contained beauty has allowed me to realize just how truly contained a life i was living. when i explored my love of swimming pools, i realized it reflected a metaphor for my own life - the way pools are contained by cement, just like the boundaries i put around myself, real or imagined. not until further into this journey did i realize just how contained i had been living (and possibly for you, too). believing in this project, following my dream and now sharing it with you has opened my life to discover more joy."

Debbi lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, surrounded by family and friends. You can follow her on Facebook, Twitter and on her blog.
