These black and white depictions of bodies swimming underwater by Sophie Bray may seem mundane upon initial viewing, but once you take into consideration that these images are drawn with nothing more than a pencil, you really appreciate how special these illustrations are. Rendered in a realistic manner, the drawings capture extraordinary detail, such as light piercing beneath the water and reflecting off the swimmers’ bodies or the many air bubbles created when swimmers breathe in the water. Sophie Bray renders her subjects in a variety of poses, encapsulating the spectrum of things you may see while swimming in the ocean.
This voyeuristic collection is entitled ‘Water Bodies’ and is one of many series by Sophie Bray that features water as a motif and muse.
