Striking Portraits of Women Submerged Beneath a Barrier of Water


Vienna-based photography studio Staudinger + Franke‘s series Barrier consists of stunning portraits of women separated from the viewer by a barrier of water. Simple in concept but executed to perfection, the images put a unique spin on the trend of underwater photography.

Ripples of water distort the faces of the women, transforming their visages into beautiful canvases of reflected light and motion. Their features blurred by almost sculptural swirls and waves, the subjects are turned into otherworldly creatures of the deep, their gazes both serene and hauntingly piercing.
