If you’ve ever seen a dog jumping into water to have a good swim, you’ve undoubtedly witnessed the joy that water can bring to a dog. But odds are that you’ve never really viewed the adorable expressions they can make from underwater.
And that’s precisely one of the reasons that photographer Seth Casteel aimed to capture his subjects when he shot a series of dogs from underwater. What he captured with his underwater camera is simply astounding.
As he told Huffington Post,when it comes to dogs, it’s all about instincts, ”Over the course of several thousands of years, we’ve taken wolves and made them Boston terriers. But still, at the heart of it, dogs have wild instincts. For me, it’s all about seeing those wild instincts come through underwater. They’re getting back to being wild. They really love being wild. And under water, they have the best chance of doing that. Whether it’s silly, whether it’s focused, whether it’s terrifying. You see that underwater.”
Casteel now has a book of photography slated to come out this October, entitled Underwater Dogs.
