Underwater Dream World (12 photos)

Finnish photographer Susanna Majuri takes us on an amazing underwater journey, to a place where few people have ever been… There is so much depth and art direction behind Majuri's work. She captures short narrative scenes as though they are film stills of a story yet to be told. Her main characters, young women mostly, their faces hidden, give a distinct impression of being lost, almost like an underwater version of Alice in Wonderland. “My challenge is to see reality in a non-traditional light,” says Majuri. “When I am shooting pictures, I have a premonition that something strange is about to happen. To me the most important quality of photography is the capability to convey emotions. My heart beats wildly when I can feel the presence of surprises.”
