Sébastien Soleil: Unique and captivating underwater works

Originally from Volvic, in a volcanic region of France, Sebastian Sun was not always a photographer but his art naturally imposed itself on him. First designer, expert in marketing and communication, the artist changed life and vision. It was during a first snorkeling in Thailand six years ago that the love story between him and the underwater world began. Three years later, he invested in a camera and a suitable case, which allowed him to capture its beauty. The result is striking shots, which call for letting go, abandonment and faith. “I believe in Freedom, not the freedom to act foolishly, but the Freedom to be free from your own past and history, from whatever you think limits you. With the help of Water I realized that we are limitless, it’s all about energy and letting go. he explains.
