Image Details

A gothic homage to this religious motif for the 21st century. This ‘Splash Crucifixion’ series is a collection of very old crucifixes that have been captured as they break the surface tension of the waters surface. 

The moment of shutter release perfectly captures and freezes the moment on film.


The images presented here on the Underwater Image Library are low resolution to serve the web, however they were all produced on analogue film and presented ‘as shot’, without the use of post production. The originals film plates are incredibly rich and detailed, each is shot on either 5x4 or 8x10 inch transparency film, scanned at high resolution with industry standard colour profiling applied.


You can view the complete selection of ‘Splash Crucifixion’ works here on the Underwater Image Library.

A selection of these works were exhibited at ‘A beautiful announcement of death’ Pertwee Anderson & Gold Gallery, London. 2012.
