Photography show at Bath's bo.lee gallery closes 28 April.
To coincide with Bath in Fashion, bo.lee gallery presents work from acclaimed underwater fashion photographer Zena Holloway whose portfolio includes commissions from Dazed & Confused, FT, GQ, Tatler, Sony and Kylie Minogue. Her images are striking, instinctive and driven by a deep understanding of her medium to deliver the remarkable; they combine the highly technical aspects of underwater photography with superb creative direction resulting in extraordinary, ethereal and magical imagery evocative of mystical fairytales suspended in time.
‘Swan Song’ derived from the legend that while swans are mute during their lives they sing beautifully and mournfully just before they die, sees a figure serenely floating in an alien world of weightless calm; a dance with time encircles a woman in a whirling metamorphosis that makes her a cloud, then a white petal and, finally, a drop of milk lost and immediately found in the deep ocean.
The idea was to show the figure floating serenely in an alien world of weightless calm. She is in a place where sight and hearing are lost; where the senses slow and the body does not breathe...she is without fear and filled with peace.
