17th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Ryan Jones, Inner Atlas 2019
This is a portrait of ocean lover Ryan Jones from my personal series, Inner Atlas.
“Inner Atlas is a contemporary and conceptual underwater portrait series exploring humankind’s relationship with nature. The work stands to showcase the human spirit in previously unseen ways by making the flux of fear and joy, and the fragility of our co-existence with the environment, palpable. Through this series of unrepeatable moments, Mitchell highlights how our primal and emotional connection to the sea is fundamentally important to the longevity of both the planet, and ourselves.”
