WATERBOARDING

When placed under extreme circumstances, the human body has a tendency to react in strange ways.  From bulging eyes to swollen cheeks to shrivelled postures, our natural instincts cause us to tense up and enter into a state of heightened emotion when placed in a situation of panic.  Waterboarding showcases these effects in the scenario of drowning, showcasing the steps and processes that the body undergoes when placed in an intense state of turmoil.

The series is divided into three parts, each one occupying one column of the website page.  The blue images showcase the individual submerged in water, with the photograph being taken right before the drowning victim runs out of air.  Next, the red shots demonstrate the subject right as they lift their heads out of the water, gasping for air.  Finally, the green images depict the subject lying on their backs trying to recover from their experience.

The reactions of the individuals across the various images range from serene to fearful to violent to bloated - a complete spectrum of human fear and experiences in a physical and psychological presentation, manifested in the form of photographs.
