Underwater Art Photography Exhibition – Sunday Times Spectrum Supplement
LSPC was approached by photographers Sophie Lewis and Emma Critchley to arrange the use of a pool for a setting of The Fear of Falling – a series of timeless, life-size underwater photo portraits that invite new ways to consider the profound experience of submergence.
Exploring our changing relationship of the present moment whilst immersed, the subject moves away from the ethereal and floaty imagery usually associated with water and offers a more grounded and weighted sense of being. With a gentle nod towards the Industrial Revolution and production processes surrounding the period, the portraits pose the question; ‘could the shifts in consciousness whilst immersed be akin to those experienced centuries ago?’ The photographs were exhibited at Fulham Palace Gallery in London as part of the Terry Neill award and at The Photographers Gallery in London.
