Gracefully Submerged in Water

New York-raised, London-based photographer Jacob Sutton is probably best known for his fashion photography or his directorial stint in a video of a snowboarder surfing at night with a custom LED suit on. Every medium the artist works in depicts his touch of haunting beauty. Sutton's photo series known as Underwater Girl is equally stirring. The series, thus far, consists of three black and white portraits of a girl submerged in water. So much of the frame is covered in a mist of white and light grays that it heightens the feeling of being immersed in water. While two the images appear mystical in their haziness, making it somewhat unclear that the images are underwater, there is one with a single tiny air bubble floating just a few inches away from the model's lips that reveal the true setting.
