Photography by Tomohide Ikeya

Japanese photographer and scuba diver Tomohide Ikeya  turned her hobby into a conceptual body of work.

“The various phenomena and life forms which exist only in the water and the beautiful play of water and light brought me a strong sense of elation and excitement. When we are covered in water, the fear inside of us comes to the surface,” says Ikeya. “Beyond this, the condition of not being able to breathe reveals our attachment to life. I capture this entirely unpredictable scene of struggle.”
