Alexander James is a master at submerged photography portraits, with his latest work taking quite a morbid twist. Photos from this artist in the past featured flowers, which is slightly more cheerful than what looks to be corpses floating in water.

One of the reasons why this photography is so stunning is due to the effect that water gives between the camera and the subject. The natural fragmentation of light and rippling comes across beautifully in the final images, which is something that's impossible to capture without submerging people into water. Alexander James understands the power of this perfectly, as exemplified by his final product.

While James's images are slightly morbid, there's no denying that they easily grab the viewer's attention.
