About

A large and very becoming underwater photograph of a girl walking down the steps in pool toward you. The light blue photograph shows no swimsuit neither any places where you would expect a swimsuit. This photograph gets a lot of attention at exhibitions. It was featured at Artexpo 2019 in New York. "She was a friend of a friend, a model from Russia. She had never worked underwater before, and I did not expect too much from the first session. She was entering the pool while I was adjusting the camera and taking test shots. I asked her to stop, and took another couple of shots of her long legs and pink nails.   It was no surprise that the picture became my bestseller. Neither was it a surprise when the model became popular and wealthy. Yet, she surprised me last year when she tried buying out the rights to this picture."
