🔴 L E I C A & Kerstin Kuntze "Wasserlust"

"German photographer Kerstin Kuntze is literally in her element shooting underwater images, which she describes as an expression of life itself. Kerstin feels at home in the water and her years of experience have given her an instinctive understanding of how to capture light and movement underwater. Her background as a graphic illustrator and designer has also seen her develop an inimitable photo-editing technique. Working with a pen in hand at her tablet, she has managed to retain an analog aspect within her digital process. The images she creates communicate wonderfully the sensory joy of entering this subaqueous world. Better known for her flamboyant, almost surrealist, color images, the following monochrome series shot with the Leica X-U reflects a more emotional and intimate side to Kerstin’s photography."
