The world of photography is probably one of the most impressive fields among the fine arts. With a game between lens and mirrors, artists can create magic universes, and sometimes, to register things we could never see through nude eyes. Some of these artists consider that the “usual” style of photography in land isn’t enough, so, they decided to explore the underwater world. We chose some images registered by these professionals in wets, buoyant and bubbly scenarios.
Australian photographer Mark Tipple has created “the underwater project“. The series of images pictures swimmers moving beneath waves, submerged as each break occurs, captured by Tipple from below the ocean’s surface.
Through this project, Tipple seeks to document australian’s intrinsic relationship with the ocean. The artist has created a handmade book containing a compilation of several removable prints from the ‘underwater project’, manufactured in a limited edition of 250 copies and found here.
This series of underwater photography by Nadia Moro is highlighted by extravagantly flowing dresses and graceful poses by the women in the photos. “Behind the Surface” shows a cast of characters performing an underwater ballet, captured in still life.
Photography techniques are difficult to master no matter what style you’re shooting, but take it off land and under water and you come face to face with a whole new set of challenges. Staying underwater long enough to get the right shot can take some time and quite a bit of patience. London/Sydney-based Mark Mawson excels at this. Each of his shots pop with color and seem unbelievably effortless.
At the age of 12, Wayne Levin‘s father gave him a camera and a kit to develop his own film, which began young Levin’s fascination with photography. His life experiences led him around the world, where Levin started documenting his travels. It was during his frequent trips to Hawaii that he found his calling, first as an underwater photographer of surfers and, later, as an artist who wanted to capture sea life in a starkly different way.
