A breathtaking feat of underwater photography and a visionary celebration of movement and form.
Acclaimed photographer Howard Schatz broke new ground in the 1990s with his books Water Dance and Pool Light, two collections of luminous photographs of dancers, some clothed and some nude, all taken underwater. His underwater photography has been called uncanny, lithe, athletic, and mysterious, and has been widely imitated in art and advertising. The dancers seem to transcend time and space to become floating, ethereal objects. Schatz's new underwater photographs are shot in a state-of-the-art, custom-built pool fitted with studio lights and regulated for chemistry and temperature all year round. The results are stunning. His unique images - at once lyrical, fantastic, and palpably real - express the beauty of inspired movement magically free of the restrictions of gravity.See all Product description

It's no secret nor a coincidence that Schatz uses professional dancers, ballerinas, and athletes to populate his underwater stage - few others could so gracefully perform the unimaginably beautiful feats that construct this work.

One of the traits I enjoyed more are those where the photographer plays with the reflexivity of the water surface from under the water. Really interesting.
