Ethereal Underwater Photographs by Claire Oring

Claire Oring is a 22-year-old conceptual photographer based in Los Angeles. Of her untitled underwater series Claire writes:

‘I approached this underwater series equipped with an underwater SLR camerapac. All the photos were either taken with a birds eye view of my models floating on the water surface or underwater. It was a grand experiment. The main objective was to observe the properties of water. The way it behaves under different conditions, the way different materials adapt to it, the way light reacts beneath it, the way it filters out certain colors. I hoped a combination of that and weightless gesture would give the illusion of flying or floating in an imaginary daydream-like world.’
