Damion Berger:

I had no idea about underwater photography to begin with but I found a used Nikonos in a shop nearby, bought a pair of swimming trunks to match the colour of the camera and started to spend day after day in different public pools, swimming around with the camera held tightly between my legs to avoid suspicion. It was such an escape both visually and psychologically from what I had been doing and it also felt so far removed from the work I was familiar with of the genre.
