In this spotlight on underwater art nudes, the vantage point is from below the surface. Most of the subjects are submerged as well. Bodies and limbs take on poses that can only be performed in the nearly weightless buoyancy of this realm.
Underwater art photography shows a world that is somewhat alien to the viewer. Gone are the familiar behavior of light and gravity. Also absent are reference points like the sky and horizon. Forms are less distinct and the distance between the viewer and subject is emphasized by being able to see the effects of light in the water. The effects of atmosphere on perspective and light are peculiar. Hair floats and flows, creating unusual shapes and signifying movement.
