Photographer Danny Eastwood's series Liquēre seeks to take part of our bodies out of context – revealing something new and strange.
"I really like the idea of creating this duality in how we see things. When unsure our mind naturally tries to interpret what we see and create something familiar from the unfamiliar – in some of these images you lose a sense of scale and they become almost landscapes", Eastwood told Fairfax Media.
Eastwood, a successful advertising and commercial photographer, shows models smothered in water. With only partial elements protruding above the waterline, Eastwood's human subjects present unusual and intriguing shapes.
"This series grew out of an earlier project, Surface Tension, which had a similar premise but focused on something a lot simpler and more familiar – hands. Shown in isolation these parts of our bodies, that we are intimately familiar with, become almost alien," Eastwood said.
Liquēre is Eastwood's first solo exhibition.
"Danny has managed to create a sculptural effect through sensual composition and lighting. With the slight movement of the liquid, his images are almost tangible, creating a sense of intimacy with the viewer," Tom Evangelidas, of Black Eye gallery, said.
Liquēre is on show at Black Eye Gallery, Sydney from February 14 to March 5, 2017.
