So today isn't about a beautiful editorial.
Though these pictures are an impressive example of photography, there's a story and a reason under them.
They were taken by American photographer Jill Greenberg, whose work and career has focused intermittently on feminist issues.
They come from a commercial shoot Greenberg was asked to make for the U.S. Olympic Synchronized Swim Team in which the professional athletes and dancers had to swim in high heels, hindering their ability and making them struggle with ambiguous movements and rush for the surface.
" The result is a sadly relevant series of shots depicting women struggling to keep head above water in a context defined by the constraints pressed upon them by others. "
It's great that a beautiful fine art has such a powerful reason behind it, denouncing the absurdity of what sometimes women are pushed to be or appear like.
