Renowned Photographer & Filmmaker, Cheryl Maeder, launched her newest Photographic Series, Celestial Babies.
Maeder collaborated with Krista Simpson of Aqua Guppies, ISR Infant Swim Instructor, eager to expand her creative work photographing humans and our relationship with Water and the Environment. I am photographing the babies swimming in the pool, however, the work takes on a much deeper meaning. In the Celestial Babies photographs, and soon to be be released film, the babies appear not only to be swimming in the water: The babies appear to be floating in Space! I want to convey that human beings come into the world as energy, pure light, which is who we really are. Swimming in the water, the babies learn not only self rescue methods. In a much larger context, through swimming the babies learn to return to their natural state of joy, freedom and happiness.
