Finnish photographer Susanna Majuri creates surreal water scenes where the viewer is left to guess at the nature of mysterious narratives. The photos appear almost like film stills, capturing a moment of action that could well end badly. The subjects are immersed in cold aqua waters that carry the story and provide an infusion of colour to every scene. In spite of the more unusual elements such as polar bears and ravens, it is the turquoise in its many hues and plays of light and shadow that bring out the emotion of Majuri's work.
