Benjamin Von Wong, a Montreal-based photographer known for his complicated productions and fantastic images bristling with power, has completed an extraordinarily difficult underwater photoshoot with absolutely stunning results. He and a hand-picked crew of experienced divers, underwater photographers and freedivers set up an entire photoshoot 25m under the sea in a sunken shipwreck off the coast of Bali.
No Photoshop was used to create these photos (except for post production)
The models in these photos had to actually hold their breath
They are true mermaids – as experienced freedivers, they can hold their breath for 3-4 minutes at a time
That’s probably why they were comfortable being TIED to this underwater shipwreck, receiving air periodically from expert safety divers
