I was looking for examples of the break taking underwater photography of "the photographer known simply as Candice" - don't try Google Imaging Searching that - of fresh2o. Her name is actually Candice Campbell.
This shot of Louise Watts is the one that intrigued me when I spotted it in the Times.
More here and here.
"fresh2o is a dramatic initiative, designed to raise awareness of this incredible challenge to humanity. Innovative photographer Candice, a pioneer of the underwater portrait, has devised an incredibly impactful series of images using celebrity icons with a global presence. These extraordinary portraits are designed to connect, engage and motivate consumers worldwide, alerting the globe to the fresh water crisis."
See also the Clean the World Foundation.
"Each month, hotels and motels provide Clean the World Foundation with their discarded soap and shampoo products. These slightly-used products often end up in already overflowing landfills and can potentially contaminate fragile groundwater systems. Once collected, these products are repurposed using environmentally-friendly and hygienically-safe recycling efforts and distributed worlwide."
