Breathing Space

Breathing Space is a collection of images taken under water either while freediving, surfing or playing in the waves or in a pool. The images have in common me holding my breath to take the photograph but also the sinking into this alien world, in which I occasionally manage to remain in satisfyingly long when I manage to really relax and focus. 

I appreciate what it takes to really feel like you have time in this world rather than feel you are in a rush for the next breath, and I really appreciate the world it gives access to, a world of strange noises and creatures, a world of explosions and no gravity (unless you empty your lungs or go deep enough).
