seriously, no work is getting done, but instead i've managed to bump into finnish photographer susanna majuri and fell in love with her work instantly. surreal ophelia-like 'stills' from a film where the plot is open to the viewer's interpretation.

similarly jill greenberg (below) uses water, but as a metaphor for the woman's world, in her photographic series 'glass ceiling'. she explains; the group of professional athletes wear high heels throughout their formation 'to be "sexy", yet this is absurd, it hinders their movement and amplifies their lack of control. They adjust their swimsuits, shoes; gasp for air, and are pushed by the relentless force of the water'.

which concludes my theory; water = win.
