Lena Lapschina: Under the Water / Above the Water (1)



"Under the water": mind-expanding, 100 % natural!

Existence without sound and verbal communication can turn out into an advantage – at least in the short term. This is what the participants in the photo sessions for the "Under the water / Above the water" project easily find out. Cold water may limit the fun.
Hot and cold all over. Both under the water and above the water, life can be pretty harsh. Even on tropical islands – if you aren't a tourist. "Sich über Wasser halten", a German metaphor, is not about fun at all, but about the basis of one's livelihood.
