Cyprus based Michael DK is currently based in Southern Cyprus and he is involved in underwater genre professionally. He has a bachelor degree in art and documentary photography. With his background of art-education, he can apply principals of the classic painters to his photography and that way provide a level of beauty that is unrivaled. “Not only that, but I am friendly, fun and easy going – working with me is a pleasurable experience where you not only gain beautiful images of yourself, but learn to be more comfortable in the water, perhaps dive deeper and get to know one of the most beautiful areas of the Mediterranean.” he states on his blog. “With my photography I am always looking for the most elegant, purest form of expression possible of the human body in an aquatic environment. I am highly inspired by impressionistic painters and try to incorporate qualities of their art into my work. Stark lighting and majestic underwater scenery are my favorite ingredients.” he explains his thoughts about what he does. He has grown up on a sailing ship, so he feels at home on and in the water. He says; “It is a completely natural environment for me, where I can combine my passion for art and freediving. I want to share the beauty of the underwater environment with the world, and enjoy capturing the human form in elegant and majestic ways in the aquatic medium.” We came upon his impressive work on Instagram and fell in love with his pure and aquatic underwater compositions.
