Photographer Brad Walls used drones to capture synchronized swimming like never before
The scene is viewed from above: Eight women in white halter bathing suits and matching swim caps form geometric shapes in a pristine turquoise swimming pool. They cascade like dominoes on the diagonal, join their arms and legs in kaleidoscopic compositions, and peek out from under the white shimmery discs of open parasols.

“I’m really trying to explore different perspectives that are unseen by our eye,” Walls said in a video interview from Sydney, Australia. At the same time, he wants to push “the artistic expression of drone work,” a technique he believes has been somewhat overlooked by fine-art photography.
