ARTIST Lexi Laine
“I aim to capture the feeling of being in another world. The otherworldly beauty of the powerful, magical sea”
Lexi Laine is a British artist working in the medium of photography. Based on the south coast of the UK, Lexi specialises in creating ethereal underwater scenes in some of the most unique and pristine locations around the globe.
She has spent several years training as a freediver in order to extend the amount of time she can stay underwater. Rather than using scuba equipment, Lexi chooses instead to undertake all of her work on a single breath hold. More often than not her photographs depict a single female or multiple women, featuring highly skilled freedivers as the subjects.
“Through my photography, I aim to capture the feeling of being in another world. I enjoy exploring contrasts; creating images that portray the otherworldly beauty of natural underwater environments but often with elements that seem incongruous.”
