A photograph from 1893 taken by the French zoologist Louis Boutan. The image is known as the first underwater photograph though this is not the case. The English solicitor and natural historian William Thompson successfully created the first underwater image nearly 40 years earlier in 1856. Thompson set up a portable darkroom tent on the shore, prepared a camera plate using the collodion process then rowed out to the centre of Weymouth bay on the south coast of England. Thompson’s camera was a box with a plate glass front and wooden shutter, attached to an iron tripod and lowered to the seabed. Operating the shutter with a string Thompson gave the plate an exposure time of 5 minutes and although water had leaked into the box he discovered upon developing the plate that he had produced a faint image of the sea floor.
"I wanted to show a normal young girl whose only difference was that she behaved in the way a boy might, without any sense of guilt on a moral or sexual level. There was really nothing shocking in what Brigitte did, what was provocative was her natural sensuality."
- Roger Vadim

“I’m not an abstractionist. I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.”—Mark Rothko
