Water Man - Brenton | Head On Photo Festival

Water Man - Brenton

Photographer's Name: 
Steven Godbee

This image of Brenton is a study in humankind's relationship with water, particularly the dark and mysterious nature of the ocean, perhaps even addressing the photographer's own fear of what lies silently below the surface.

"Water Man - Brenton" comes from a series of portraits shot in water, all shots using the Holga camera. 

The lo-fi and random qualities of the plastic lens and inherent light leaks affect the film in a random way that seems to add new reflections and unpredictability to the watery surface, the sinister and treacherous domain of this water man.
