Immersion by Tim Tadder is a continuation of the American photographer's underwater portrait series. While his Fish Head series revolved around the average Jill and Joe, this photoshoot focuses on more theatrical individuals. Specifically, it captures students from the University of San Diego's Master's of Fine Arts and Acting program as they channel Shakespeare characters. They use "water's natural surface tension to create incredible textured backgrounds as they dive through the surface," according to the Los Angeles-based photographer.

Full of raw emotion and iconic characters, Immersion by Tim Tadder invites viewers to match the portrait with the play it was inspired by. Rife with movement, submersion and intensity, these plays include Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
