Little Mermaid: A charming islander won the Internet with her hobby
The 27-year-old model publishes stunning shots of friendly swimming with stingrays, sharks, whales, turtles and dolphins. Most of all she likes to communicate with them, not even wearing a swimsuit. She is sure that none of the sea inhabitants will harm her, and she lays them in her instagram by appeasing nude from the underwater depths.
Meet the model and designer Rawa Ray. She was born in the US state of Kentucky and spent her childhood in French Polynesia, near Tahiti. Today, Rava lives and works in Hawaii.
There are polyglot girls in the biography and such items as several years in France, a year in China, and work as a diving instructor in Costa Rica.
Rava graduated from the University of Hawaii with a degree in economics, but she found her vocation in the design of jewelry and clothing.Inspired by the natural beauty of island nature, she uses shells and feathers in her works. Some of them appeared on the pages of the British Vogue.
After Rava learned to dive and swim underwater, and also became fascinated by underwater photography, her family moved to Hawaii. Here the girl swims at her pleasure with turtles, sharks and dolphins.
As the girl says, meetings with large sea animals and fish bring her extraordinary emotions. She had a chance to swim with a tiger shark, and she simply adored interacting with stingrays.
She says that marine life is far from as dangerous for humans as we used to think, especially after watching feature films. It is a myth that the first desire of wild animals is to attack humans.
Rava is not at all afraid of close contact with the inhabitants of the underwater kingdom, being completely naked: “I don’t represent danger to them, apparently therefore I have never been attacked” And indeed, the pictures of her communication with marine animals convey an atmosphere of complete harmony, trust and carelessness.
The girl said that for all the time only once it was bitten by a ramp, but it was an accident. Just wild animals do not always understand how to behave with a person ...
Rava can hold his breath for up to two minutes, and this time is enough to take such pictures. Previously, she dived a lot alone, but still prefers to dive in the company of friends.
To shoot her rather intimate communication with the underwater kingdom, she trusts only three photographers. In addition, for such filming requires a special technique, therefore, as Rava admits, she has much less nudes photo sessions than we would like.
The girl puts pictures and videos in her Instagram, more than 50 thousand people have already been signed to the page. Rava is sure that this will help other people to drop stereotypes and get closer to nature.
