In his photographic series Where Waters Meet Charrière captured naked free divers descending into the abyss of aquatic caves in Mexico known as Cenotes. As the divers’ bodies are penetrating a chemocline - an obscure and uncanny layer of bottom water full of sulphurous bacteria - they are dissolving both in pictorial and metaphorical terms and are sinking not only deeper towards the bottom of the sea but also into their psyche, entering a state of being one with your surroundings which is often referred to as “oceanic feeling.”
