I'd love to live in the hyperreal landscapes in Daniel EspÃrito Santo's 'Waterscape' series. The black-and-white images feature a mystical tropical lagoon in which kids gleefully cliff dive into the water as sunbathers look on.
Even though Daniel EspÃrito Santo's 'Waterscape' photos are black and white, I can imagine the popping greens and blues of the vivid, lush landscape in my mind's eye.
Implications - What makes the Waterscape series so brilliantly appealing is the way it blurs the line between fantasy and reality, incorporating familiar images from everyday life and converging them with supernatural imagery. Additionally, monochromatic shoots like this one are platforms for the imagination to take off and for audiences to interpret the meaning of the art whichever way they please.
