Check out my photo story on the amazing Aquanuts synchronized swimmers!
CLICK HERE to see the film I made of the Walnut Creek Aquanuts Junior/Senior 2012 team for Oyster Magazine. They are a wonderful group of girls, who DREAM BIG and will go far! wish them all the very best!!!
I travelled to Walnut Creek, CA to photograph a fashion story for OYSTER MAGAZINE’s 100th issue, themed DREAM. I chose synchronized swimmers….they’re so elegant & focused & it’s so topically appropriate thanks to the Olympics!
Through my research I found the AMAZING Walnut Creek Aquanauts! While there, I was so compelled by their dedication to the sport & their physical & mental grace that I decided to make a short doc as well. I’m very proud of it!
It premiers today on Oyster’s site - I would link but it seems their site is DOWN RIGHT NOW?? IS IT THE VIDEO?? MOST LIKELY!!
But you can watch it here!! Or here!! Thank goodness…
We just got back from a great shoot in San Francisco with the Aquanuts for Oyster Mag. It’s pretty incredible how disciplined & athletic & focused those girls were. But at the same time, girls are girls & it was a blast to shoot with them, so irreverent & excited to participate!
It reminded me of when we were in SF last for our short doc on Alexis Blair Penny & her drag family. I’m unsure if I ever posted this officially but have a look. I’m really proud of all this video work…& this one is really what has set me off in this new direction.
