“I shoot underwater because it’s where I feel safe and comfortable. My work comes from a place of weakness, not strength. There is a certain loveliness to that, I think, making something beautiful out of a limitation. I’m an introvert, prone to depression and anxiety and easily overwhelmed when around groups of people. After years of trying to fight it, I’ve accepted that this is the way I am wired,” Cheryl told Bored Panda.

“Underwater fine art photography is both an art and a science — you can’t have one without the other. It took me years to figure out the exact science so that I could simply focus on the art. Now that I have that dialed in, it’s just a dream come true to be able to create there. It’s my own private studio, where I can connect with humanity on my own terms.”
