The 100 Swimmers, a project by photographer Attilio Fiumarella, saw the empty Gala Pool at Moseley Road Baths in Balsall Heath filled with swimmers, photography fans, city heritage enthusiasts and community supporters.

It was in reaction to the news that Birmingham City Council intends to close the historic building permanently in 2015.

It also completed a community photographic project entitled The Swimmers which is on show at the Old Print Works in Birmingham until Wednesday 23 July 2014.

Attilio Fiumarella has been working to document the under-threat Grade-II Moseley Road Baths building over the past few months.
