In a bid to prove that sharks can be cute and cuddly too, Irina Britanova, a 27yr old model took to the waters in Maldives in the company of tawny nurse sharks. Irina went completely nude for the shoot which took place at a depth of 55ft. The images were captured by underwater photographer, Andrey Nekrasov. He said:
'The aim of this is to capture beauty in nature and not show any vulgarity.'
'There were about ten or more sharks who showed curiosity and approached closely.
'In such a situation with capturing sharks underwater, the model and photographer have to adjust to the circumstances.
'I like to show naked nature, such as it is. I think the naked human in the wild looks harmonious.
'People usually like the pictures, though everyone with their different reasons.'
