Helen Pynor is a photographer whose work depicts what appears to be underwater worlds with floating organs and objects. Some of Pyrnor’s works contain delicate text with remedies for aches and pains. The images seem to highlight the fragility of the human body as the organs float in an endless but calm void, creating a range of conflicting emotions. The photographs have an intriguing tranquil effect as they almost appear to be moving in slow motion amongst the unfamiliar space.
