Diamante Murru’s gallery ‘Abyss’ features four women seemingly submerged under water and depicts each one in a diferent scene. Each illustration contains a tentacle-like extremity coming from or attached to the woman and each work leaves the viewer with the feeling of floating swimming around in their head.
Disturbing and serene, the illustrations masterfully depict women in a bound, yet free-falling environment.
Implications - Underwater photography affords a level of elegance and ethereal timelessness not found on solid ground. This photographer used image retouching to add tentacles and push the undersea theme. Creative professionals can take advantage of this opportunity by using underwater photography in ad campaigns and printed marketing materials.
