Elina RukaRiga, LatviaInspired by one of the most powerful forces in nature, Elina Ruka’s fine art photography is a reflection of fear blended with fascination. Her own personal apprehension at being exposed to the power of the ocean translates into a curiosity about the duality of being both pulled in and pushed away by forces beyond our control — but not beyond our understanding.
From digital to film, underwater to gopro.
Shot on Lake Michigan, Chicago, this image is an expression of Elina Ruka’s personal fear of the sea. Combining multiple images as layers, it evokes a careful curiosity that aims to contextualize why this powerful force of nature causes anxiety. Simultaneously, this fine art photograph encourages looking at each other beyond reactionary and surface-level observations — much like the ocean, there’s more to each of us underneath what is seen.
