Portraits Of People Half Submerged In Water

Underwater photography adds a layer of mysticism as bodies are transformed and water becomes yet another presence and an overwhelmingly major factor in how the final product turns out. With this in mind, Vienna-based photography studio Staudinger + Franke created a new photo series titled “Barrier” featuring portraits of women and men half submerged in water. The swirling hair and the added glare and ripples of the water add a beautiful touch to each image while the looks in some of the models eyes bring an interesting element unseen in typical portrait photography.
