Fascinating Underwater Portraits of Bodysurfers.
This 5 minute short by filmmaker Robert Sherwood about Australian photographer Trent Mitchell and his latest series, titled Inner Atlas. Take some time out from the busy festive season to enjoy this film exploring Trent’s creative process and visual experimentation.
Mitchell explains: “This portrait series celebrates the human spirit through movements of the sea in an unfamiliar and forgotten space...I felt intrigued to investigate the interconnection of humans with nature through the most pure form of wave riding, the primitive art of bodysurfing.”
“My aim to render the true essence of the human condition and a mirror of one’s self could only be captured within the moment and in a single breath. In a space that moved the subject and the viewer with equal pull,” says the artist.
