14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Celestial Babies I

Over a nine month period, the babies were photographed swimming and floating in water. The expression on their faces was of Joy and Simply Being. When we come into the world, we are born innocent, and then we learn as we get older, what we can and cannot do. We lose this natural state of innocence. Celestial Babies celebrates this Return to innocence, joy and freedom. Through floating and swimming in Water, the babies experience their natural state of Connectedness.
