We fall, we fly, we feel.
My love dreams of going to outer space. I cannot take him there. This will be the future of our species, but we were born just a little too early, as he believes.
So I take him to another dimension. Where we can sink into darkness, float into the light and feel weightless in between. There is no sound, we disconnect and connect at the same time.
AUTHOR: Wendy Timmermans (Netherlands)
I was born in Rotterdam, The Netherlands and from young age the water has been my element. As a swimmer I spend my holidays in the ocean playing in big waves or searching for shells on the sea bottom. Later in my life I became a top ranked freediver and instructor.
I feel passionate to explore the beauty of the underwater realm and capture this on camera. I have been shooting underwater since 2006, at first with a small compact camera mainly of marine life, later focusing more on people underwater.
My pictures are taken in a natural way, on one breath while freediving. This way I can move around freely and not disturb or have impact on the underwater environment. I look for simplicity and harmony and have a strong preference for natural light. The underwater environment and human interaction with it, is very dynamic, making it an endless source of inspiration for me.
