"No Violence"


Virginia Salzedo won a won a gift certificate from Bluewater Photo and Bluewater Travel.


The Story:  I took this photo on the international day for the elimination of violence against women (November 25) at the request of Fipsas (Italian federation of underwater sports). I tried to tell in a different way a theme as dramatic as violence against women. I brought underwater a red bench, a symbol of female suffering, and as models I chose three world champions of fin swimming, to represent the strength and delicacy of us women, who are capable of great feats.
