The mirror

The story behind this print, in the words of photographer Gabriel Barathieu: "I wanted to take this perfectly mirrored picture for a while now. I already located the right spot for it, but had to wait for the great low tides which only occur two or three times a year. To create this mirror shot, I had to wait for all the ripples to fade. For that, it was necessary to move as little as possible. I had to completely exhale the air from my lungs so that I would sink without stirring up any sediment. I waited in expiratory apnea for at least a minute before taking the shot with a perfect angle of the camera."

This image, taken in the Comoros Islands, was Highly Commended in the Ocean Conservation (Hope) Photographer of the Year category at OPY2023.
