I love surfing photography and I love underwater photography. So when I saw Lucia Griggi’s underwater shots of surfers I was in seventh heaven.
A passionate surfer as well as photographer she has a great connection with her subjects and with the sea, giving you the sense of both the surfers grace and the awesome power and majesty of the ocean.
She explains “It is about being connected with the waves and moving alongside the surfer under the water. Feeling its energy and initiating the movements of the surfer.”
Though it’s a cliché I kept having the lyrics from the Beach Boys ‘Feel Flows’ running through my head when I was looking at her images,
Unfolding enveloping missiles of soul
Recall senses sadly
Mirage like soft blue like lanterns below
To light the way gladly
