Chilling Underwater series by Erin Mulvehill

Inspiration, Resources | Jul 8, 2011

Erin Mulvehill is a young photographer based in Brooklyn, who graduated with a BS honors degree in photography from Syracuse University.

Unlike many modern photographers, she shoots on analog 35mm film (she scans the negatives to do post-processing in Photoshop).

In this post you’ll see the breath-taking photos captured in her Underwater, to be reborn series, which has been dedicated to the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Underwater series includes images of what resembles girls trapped under ice, frozen in time. The photos are chilling and hauntingly beautiful.

There are twenty four images in the series, with at least a dozen different models. The idea for the series, according to Erin, came to her in a dream. And despite appearances, the photos were shot in a studio, not underwater.

You can find out more information about the artist at her website I Can Freeze Time You can also view the series in person in Munich, Germany from July 1st-Setp. 30th at the Candela Project Gallery

What do you think of the Underwater series? What emotions and thoughts do these images provoke in you? Please share in the comments!

    There are great. Anyone know if they’re available in larger sizes? could use a new background.

    I bet seeing these in a gallery…blown up mega-size would be a jaw-dropping, check-over-your-shoulder-for-the-bogeyman experience.  Excellent work.
