Francesca Owen is a photographic artist who specialises in underwater photography. Her passion for the water started as a Synchronised Swimmer at the age of 8, following on to compete at the 2012 Olympic Games. Her Bachelor of Photojournalism from Griffith University enabled her to combine two of her passions, water and photography which took her beneath the surface. She enjoys capturing the magic that unfolds underwater, and lures her audience in through the elegance and movement of the human body. She is continuously exploring the depths of underwater photography, with some of her new work going skyward with images captured underwater and placed in various landscapes.
“People always use to refer to synchronised swimmers as mermaids, so I wanted to incorporate a feminine element to my work. My photographic art is all about exposing the raw beauty of the human body as well as the feeling you get in the water".
