Series: Reflections

In the speckled darkness of his waters, the nude feminine body becomes a beacon, a flash, a sensual streak of light. Just as his camera captures the fleeting moment of these chaotic reflections, the image that remains illuminates the transient nature of time itself.

In a delicate smear of faded blues intermingled with the curves and lines of the pale colors of the skin, Alex Sher’s “Brushstroke” uncovers his phenomenal ability to capture the transient brushstrokes of nature.

“Brushstroke” is a part of Alex Sher’s popular series REFLECTIONS underwater photographs that could be almost mistaken for abstract paintings as they bring up recollections of masterpieces by Picasso, Dali or Gustav Klimt. In fact REFLECTIONS are straight photographic capturing of the water’s surface from below, with a submerged underwater camera. The photographs freeze natural momentary reflections in water surface the unique kaleidoscopic fragmentations of human body into nearly unrecognizable forms.
It is these bold accents of color, mesmerizing textures, dramatic lines, and distinctive distortions that make Sher’s works unique highly advisable masterpieces.
