The Underwater Project

Sydney-based photographer Mark Tipple captures a crushing sense of beauty with his new series “The Underwater Project”. It features swimmers as they dive underneath sets of oncoming waves and struggle against the churning water.  Despite being such a violent and tumultuous act, the images have a certain stillness and tranquility to them. Divers find a fleeting moment of peace as they sink to the bottom, letting the torrential storm of water rip over their heads, before calmly emerging on the other side.  Tipple has turned the series into limited-edition handmade book as well as iPad App.

In a behind the scenes video below, Tipple explains the reason behind the project and show his methods for capturing such remarkable images.
