Celestial Babies, Submerge I

This photograph is from my series Celestial Babies, where I spent nine months photographing toddlers swimming and floating in Water. The Celestial Babies Series is about our journey to go within to connect with the Self, Each Other and the Environment that surrounds us. The babies were so joyous to be in the water and I captured this photograph as Natasha the toddler went into the water and was so beautiful and peaceful. I also created a film on this series which I am exhibiting at Scope Art Fair, Art Basel Week, Miami, Fl.
