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

HT flood1 ml 131107 wblog  The Female Figure, Surreal and Underwater 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.   HT flood2 ml 131107wblog  The Female Figure, Surreal and Underwater 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.

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… HT flood4 ml 131107wblog  The Female Figure, Surreal and Underwater All Images Courtesy  Harry Fayt
