17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
A shot of synchronized swimming team underneath the water preparing for their next move.

I am the father of two synchronized swimmers and have the privilege of shooting the team both above and below water. In this shot, I submersed myself below the surface of the water with the intention of shooting the underwater action that is "behind the scenes" and which creates the beautiful work on the surface.
