Freediving is a team sport and photography is a collaboration, so it's always about friends anyway, and this June emphasised that. First i had consecutive jobs in Barcelona and Ibiza, which meant i got to visit my friends Louisa, Lynn and Gary from Freedive Ibiza and play in one of the most amazing caves in the world

Then our friend Helena came to visit from Austria, and i'd asked her to bring the traditional dress, a dirndl, to play in in our new studio:

They are wild and not used to interactions with humans, so quite shy, but we made sure that we didn't approach them, but let them instigate contact, which they did after a while. I remember feeling so happy we got to visit them, so in awe of their environment and their beauty - and then one of them felt comfortable enough around me to pose for this picture:
