Stunning Underwater Photos of People Fighting Against the Ocean

Mark Tipple, a rapidly emerging Australian documentary photographer, captures people completely out of their element in his Underwater Project photo series. Exploring Australia’s relationship with the ocean, Mark goes below the sea surface and photographs swimmers and surfers not when they’re on top of the wave, but after they get underwater and forget all about posing and smiling.

I always wondered what it looks like from a  different angle than what we can see above the surface,” says Mark. Besides The Underwater Project, Mark is a prolific photographer with a rich portfolio with subjects raging from portraits to weddings to landscape photography. Check out his website for some great shots!
