The models in this shoot aren’t just beautiful women in flowing white gowns. They’re experienced freedivers — divers who dive without oxygen tanks — who can hold their breath for three to four minutes at a time.

The idea behind the images, said best by Bored Panda: “Their flowing dresses transform them into the wonderfully beautifully mermaids or nymphs of mythology, who threatened to drag sailors bewitched by their beauty to the cold, dark depths.”
