Ghostlike Underwater Portraits Of Bodysurfers By Australian Photographer Trent Mitchell

Published 5 years 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!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
