A Bermudian photographer’s surreal work transports viewers to an alternative universe the “Huffington Post” says today [Mar.1] in a report titled “James Cooper’s Underwater Wonderland.”
Mr. Cooper — who also sculpts and is involved in performance art — took the images featured at the popular current affairs and arts website in Bermuda, the Bahamas and Mexico.
“A bloody nose, a tuft of kicked-up dust and a trail of spray paint make beautiful and bizarre clouds under the sea,” said the Huffington Post’s critic. “Bodies float in an ethereal trance-like state, part pool party and part deep meditation. The images remind of us an ultra-modern play on John Everett Millais’ ‘Ophelia’, where the natural and the supernatural become one.”
