1950s underwater photography

de bene esse: literally, of well-being, morally acceptable but subject to future validation or exception

Models in incredible underwater 1950s photos shot by Bruce Mozert
Bruce Mozert from Ohio was a leading pioneer of underwater photography. He captured his pin-ups in everyday scenarios, smiling while holding their breath in sub-aquatic conditions. Pictured: A brunette reads the newspaper in oversized sunglasses (left), a model reclines on the seabed as she speaks on the telephone (top right) and a woman is serenaded by a man with a guitar as a fish swims into view (bottom right).
