The Underwater Project

14 Apr

For years, Australian documentary and humanitarian photographer Mark Tipple used the ocean to find solace from the world. One day while swimming in the shorebreak in 2009, he dived down and turned the camera on the kids next to him as they struggled and contorted to avoid the wave and he got the first image of what would later be called The Underwater Project. This first image called ‘Escape’ was close to those underwater images he’d been dreaming about creating for the last decade. Mark said he’s always been intriqued by what happens below the surface, like what’s happening where we can’t see. Now almost 2 years later, Mark has spent countless hours below the surface capturing surfers, swimmers and divers with amazing results that most of the landlocked world has never seen.
