Take a dive underwater with the Kate Friend 'What Lies Beneath' shoot, which is an exquisitely unusual display of eerie photographic beauty. This series of photos explore worlds both above and below the surface, featuring sea creature-style poses, horses and an exploration of the underworld. The dreamlike sequence takes viewers into an alternate world, where fantasy and the subconscious collide through thought-provoking and shiver-inducing imagery that walks the line between fantasy and reality. Model Widika uses everything at her disposal, from the massive stallion to the flow of the water, to create the mystical air of this captivating shoot.

"The story was inspired by a black sand dreamscape, an inverted wilderness; the beach at the end of the world," Kate says. "I also wanted to explore the sensation of freedom in space. Shooting underwater was a great way to do this."
