Description

An an accomplished triathlete and free diver, Lucas Murnaghan works without additional SCUBA equipment, allowing him a deeper connection to his subject. This personal and organic approach allows for greater versatility and a heightened level of intimacy to the finished product. In the present work, Murnaghan explores notions of vulnerability and confidence through the familiar yet physically and emotionally challenging underwater medium. Slipping beneath the surface, he removes traditional constraints and conventions and frees his subjects of their earth bound conceptions and societal norms. With the rules changed, they are liberated to explore themselves in a parallel universe and express what lies beneath.
