This photo by Maria Friberg is part of the series "Almost there" from 2000. It is a suite of five different pictures with similar motifs of men in suits floating around the pool's water. With an unusually strong symbolism, Friberg has explored in several projects what it means to be a man. Friberg worked with the series just when the IT boom was about to enter a new phase that eventually led to the so-called IT crash. In March 2000, the bubble burst and caused major financial losses. In her photo series "Almost there" Friberg has succeeded in illustrating the chaos that the costumed young entrepreneurs and investors suddenly found themselves in.
