Francine Fleischer

This photographer’s work was incredibly interesting to me. The Artist Statement below was stirring and captivating as well. Francine was recently a HHS contender and absolutely caught my eye as I was scrolling through the blog. Kudos Francine, great concept and even greater execution. I want to see a massive blow up of this image!

“This series was photographed in a sinkhole that was used for thousands of years by an ancient culture for human sacifice. Today, the deep water is used by thousands of tourists on holiday, for recreational swim. The contradiction of purposes is a bizarre and curious one. The swimmers seem oblivious to the history of the location although the darkness and depth of the water elude to another time and agenda.”
