Aquamorphosis is an under water art project, where man and ocean melts together in a mythical underwater universe. In detail, Ingrid Bugge uses the underwater photography to show our emotional states. Especially feelings such as love, surrender, devotion, depression, joy and anxiety. In every photography, the human body is under water, far away from everyday life.
Ingrid explains that the dreamy, floating, embracing and poetic expressions of underwater movement inspired her to create the mermaids of Aquamorphosis.
In Bugges editing proces she has created pieces inspired by the the renaissance oil paintings, with depth and drama. The digital editing of the photographs involves the principles of a certain painting technique namely, chiaroscuro. An Italian word that roughly translate to light and dark. The term describes the striking use of the light and shade. As a result, a dramatic effect arises.
Below are examples. Arrangements are available in the Gallery and postershop.
