It’s a baby takeover in photographer Seth Casteel’s photo book, Underwater Babies. In this project, Casteel captures energetic, curious, and just plain adorable babies spending a little time underwater. And while he completely covers the cute factor, there’s also a message behind these uber-cute photos: water safety.
“Through advocating water safety for pets, I became aware that water safety for children was also very serious issue,” Casteel shares on his website. “After watching a few infant swim classes and learning of the associated benefits, I realized I could possibly help to bring awareness to this cause through a series of joyful images.”And that is exactly what he does. “By creating this book, I hope to encourage and inspire parents to consider swim lessons for their children, with the ultimate goal of preventing tragedies,” further explains the photographer.
