Photographer Jem Cresswell and Martine Emdur’s paths first crossed back in 2015, due to their mutual connection with the ocean. Bringing their worlds together, this black and white series captured along the urban coastal fringe of Sydney, Australia, invites us on an immersive journey to aquatic bliss. ⁠⠀

We see figures, poetic in nature, rollicking in freedom. The ocean, a multi-sensory escape, of such significance to so many of our lives.⁠⠀

Jem’s latest series ‘Subaqueous’ in collaboration with Martine Emdur was recently a part of group exhibition, light FAST, at Twenty Twenty Six Gallery. ⁠
