'Swim: The Water in Between is a captivating photo series that captures people swimming in a mysterious swimming hole in Mexico. The swimming hole is located dozens of feet below a hole in Mexico. The swimming hole's unique location creates for a spectacular interplay of light with the dark waters.

The photos have a strangely dark look to them, in stark contrast to regular photos of water bodies. This gives the photos a beautiful, mysterious air. Further adding to the mystery is the fact that this swimming hole, now a popular swimming location, was once used to carry out human sacrifices hundreds of years ago.

'Swim: The Water in Between' is the work of New York-based photographer Francine Fleischer. The series is on display at Gallery Tanto Tempo in Kobe, Japan from May 10-June 22.
