Remember that 102-year-old lens that photographer Timur Civan fit on his Canon 5D Mark II? After many requests for video shot with the lens, he’s obeyed – and with a beautiful, slightly NSFW video, to boot.
Timur Civan was not content with the lens offerings for his Canon EOS 5D Mark II, so he outfitted it with a Wollensak 35mm F5.0 Cine-Velostigmat lens from 1908. That’s over 100 years of photography history in one camera. And it works!
In this remarkable clip, world freediving champion Guillaume Nery stands at the edge of the world’s second deepest underwater sink hole. And he jumps. The ensuing photography is a hypnotic adventure into the impossible.
