BODIES IN WATER - Karin Schimke and Helen Walne
If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water - Loren Eiseley, American philosopher and natural science writer.
Immerse yourself in a world of beauty, strangeness and magic as award-winning poet Karin Schimke and freediver and writer Helen Walne present a mini-marvel show of underwater photography and poetry. Karin and Helen, the photographer of the "underwonder", will read their own poems about water and swimming, as well as swimming poems by some of the great poets of our time.
