Surreal Portraits of Kids Submerged Underwater by Alix Martinez

Alix Martinez has shot portraits of children underwater for several years. She comes up with fun and imaginative scenes of children playing – like golf, football, and tennis. Most of these photos could even be categorized as fine art – like the one of the two Catholic girls holding hands and twirling in the water and the girl holding her yellow dress.

“I have always loved photographs that display ripples and reflections,” Martinez told My Modern Met when asked why she enjoys underwater photography. “There’s something magical and beautiful when water is photographed. Since I am a children’s photographer, I am always trying to come up with ideas to photograph them in a unique way.” Of course, shooting underwater comes with its own set of challenges. As Martinez explains, “Underwater photography can be quite difficult especially with little subjects. The first time I almost drowned because I saw a shot I did not want to miss, but It is so rewarding when you look at your images. When I started, I could only hold my breath for 25 seconds and now I feel like a marine going under for 2 minutes.”

Children by Loretta Lux

Her earliest works include set against icy blue skies – Troll (2000), Lois (2000), and Isabella (2001). When she moved to Ireland, she began to shoot pairs of children rather than solitary ones.

Lux’s work has been exhibited in many museums like Getty Museum in Los Angeles, CA, the National Museum of Art in Osaka, Japan, and the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, Switzerland.
