The Baptism | Underwater

Throughout my art studies, Stefan (my brother-in-law) has always been there encouraging me as well as posing as the subject of my work. His willingness to push himself to the limits has always inspired new ideas and I am so grateful and excited to be able to use him again as I’m starting experimenting for my next projects.

While the weather is already much warmer and the pool was filled with teens, we got a bit of a fright when Stefan started to struggle and could not warm up after being in the water for only 30min. He suffers from severe Crohn’s disease which means his body fat percentage is extremely low…. I felt terrible as his shoulders just wouldn’t stop shaking, but after a while the colour came back to his cheeks and the day was saved 🙂
