“Guided by intuition and mindfulness as I release the shutter, my photographs explore a fascination with water imagery and beach culture, subjects that are deeply rooted in my memories of childhood.  Swimming with my camera allows me to study the texture, color, and poetry of water above and below the surface. And I am able to capture intimate moments with human subjects from the unique vantage point of the water, a method that I refer to as aquatic street photography. In several of the series, I turn the camera on my family, exploring the presence of technology in modern-day childhood, and pondering the relationship between my young sons as they grow.”  Deb Achak
