Japanese photographer Tomohide Ikeya currently has a beautiful new photography book for his recent exhibition, "Breath".
The underwater portraits hold an ethereal, operatic tone as the subjects dance, intertwine, embrace and struggle all with an element of humanity. "When we are covered in water, the fear inside of us comes to the surface. Beyond this, the condition of not being able to breathe reveals our attachment to life. I capture this entirely unpredictable scene of struggle....Water is a philosophical existence very much even be as ’just water’. I had been fascinated with water more and more and I had gotten a zeal for expression it." [via Juxtapoz]
