Vanitas: Underwater Photography by Alexander James
Romantic underwater photography. Still life scenes meticulously created in huge dark tanks of water then photographed. Artist statement:This series revisits the work of the 17th century Dutch masters using period props, food and real insects including butterflies that I breed myself. Each carefully staged underwater scene is captured in-camera, using subtle distortions of light and movement from the water’s own wave energy to create a unique and painterly effect without either traditional or digital post-production. The subjects appear to be floating in a black space which neither interferes nor disrupts the subject matter but interacts with it within this void to offer a serene and dreamlike sensation.
To celebrate Afro-indian culture within East Africa.

Revelry co-ord 1! I’m uploading this now because I’ll be staying at my parents with no convenient lighting/blanket/time and space to do this before next Saturday.

I looooooove this print so much, excited to wear it as well as wear proper classic, which I do very seldom.
I want every part of this!
