That she is a great swimmer, multiple Olympic Gold medalist Britta Steffen has proven quite a few times. But that she can also float through the water dreamily with lightness like an enchanting fairy is demonstrated by her at the underwater shoot with Susanne Stemmer for BARBARA magazine. The fashion and kids photographer, who meanwhile commutes between Vienna and Paris, specializes in the high art of underwater photography. The editorial with the world-class swimmer is one more demonstration of her expertise in capturing model, movement and clothing in a perfect, seemingly weightless symbiosis.
On the team with Susanne were Fashion Director Wiebke Broecker, assistants Faustyna Klabun and Ale Elsbacher, as well as Birgit Fuchs for make-up. Post production was in the hands of Malkasten.

The shoot was photographed and filmed in Austria. Retouching and color grading were in the hands of Roman Keller/Malkasten, video compositing was taken care of by Friendly Fire Communications, and the music was composed by Max van der Rose.
