Photography barely knows any limits anymore. This is made clear once again by photographer Von Wong, who has done an especially absurd shoot.

In Von Wong's shoot, a model was tied up in a cave in the sea, in the perfect spot to have rays of sunshine hitting her. Then they waited until sharks entered the cave, so the perfect shot could be made. In the meantime, the model was wearing an oxygen mask. She took it off for as long as she could as soon as a shark entered.

Von Wong is hoping to attract attention to sharks and has even started a petition for the protection of the animals.

How the model was kept safe from the sharks? I have no idea. But the images turned out amazing.
