Water Nude, Los Angeles, 2003

Expressing the sheer physical joy of being submerged in water, this is a liberating and hypnotic image. Shooting below his subject, Comte evokes the wonderful feeling of weightlessness, his models limbs extended and free. The coloured light and her reflection on the surface of the water makes this an enchanting scene. Like a beautiful mermaid, drifting through the water, this underwater image has a serene and tranquil feeling. The models reflection gives a mystical quality to the photo, expressing both the beauty of her body and the otherworldly feeling of being immersed in water. Comte created this image in his adopted home of Los Angeles, where he moved in the 1980s.
