Ghostlike Underwater Portraits Of Bodysurfers By Australian Photographer Trent Mitchell

Published 5 months ago

Trent Mitchell is an Australian photographer whose works focus a lot on the ocean. In his latest series, titled Inner Atlasthe artist took amazing black & white pictures of people practicing what he calls “the most pure form of wave riding” – bodysurfing.

The photographer says the series celebrates the human spirit through movements of the sea in an unfamiliar and forgotten space. He felt intrigued by the wave riders and wanted to find out what attracts people to this primitive art. “How does it feel flowing at the perfect speed, immersed within the fluidity of the of the sea? What is revealed when one’s spirit expands into the space that surrounds?” asks Trent.

“My aim to render the true essence of the human condition and a mirror of one’s self could only be captured within the moment and in a single breath. In a space that moved the subject and the viewer with equal pull,” says the artist. Check out his amazing pictures in the gallery below!
