The Female Figure, Surreal and Underwater

Belgian photographer Harry Fayt's work focuses primarily on the theme of water.

Like many artists both past and present, the female figure, epitome of beauty, fascinates, influences and guides him in his artistic evolution. He has chosen to photograph the female figure in water, a natural and vital component of life, pure and complex. Series after series, new elements are integrated, with each experiment inspiring the next, so as to finally, as though an alchemist of beauty, achieve aesthetic transcendence… Beauty in it purest form. For some reasons yet to be discovered, since he's 4, Harry Fayt never liked to swim at the surface, and being underwater would become second nature for him. In this kind of photography all falls within the challenge: the technical, security, models, scenery. It is a constant battle done of creative stratagems for Harry Fayt and his team. The larger the project, the more exciting it is. In its nudes he seeks beauty, purity a and what he calls certain angelism. He likes to magnify the female body, seeing it evolve without any external pressure, no resistance. In all his work, his motto is to create the improbable, the non-existent and arouse curiosity… All Images Courtesy Harry Fayt
