Photography: Digital, Color, Manipulated on Aluminium.
'Elephant', from ‘Underwater Sculpture’ series by Maya Almeida.'Nautilus', from ‘Underwater Sculpture’ series by Maya Almeida. I shot this ‘Underwater Sculpture’ series as part of a personal project. The series was shot underwater at the end of day to evoke wonder and magic using silk fabric originally from India. The shoot involved negotiating with local Egyptian authorities to gain access to the right part of the ocean and was shot on the night of the Strawberry Full Moon in early June with natural light in the Southern Red Sea. Light and water were particularly harmonious. After a few days trying to work the fabric around models, I realised that once the human element was removed, and the fabric sculpted using feet and hands, it took on a life of its own and could be moulded into fascinating shapes with light behaving the way it only does in water.A limited edition of 15 pieces available, 70 x 70cm.
