Children and water don't always mix, but that is certainly not the case when it comes to the photo series succinctly titled Water by Alix Martinez, a photographer working in the surrounding areas of New York and Connecticut. It is rife with playful and imaginative underwater scenes that could easily have manifested from the dreams of the little tykes captured. Whether a little boy channels his inner Superman or a couple of girls are dancing around the rosie, the images are enchanting.
Water by Alix Martinez encourage audiences to indulge in their own imaginations while also appreciating the qualities of the surrounding element. Martinez writes, "I have always loved photographs that display ripples and reflections. There's something magical and beautiful when water is photographed." Yet underwater photography isn't without its challenges.
