"The Jellyfish Treasure"



The Story: 2018 was the hottest year in Germany since the beginning of weather recording. So we had summer from April to October and a lot of time to work creatively in an outdoor pool. The jellyfish are aquarium accessories. In the wooden treasure chest we put two strobes with rsu and lead pieces. On the one hand to keep the box on the ground, on the other to attach the jellyfish with nearly invisible strings on the lead pieces. And finally all credit to the beautiful model Sonja, who had made this picture possible.
