We’ve seen models shoot in some of the most exotic locations in the world, but Benjamin Von Wong’s epic underwater photo shoot just takes the cake.

Wong photographed models underwater near a shipwreck in Bali. According to his blog, Wong needed an extremely experienced team to help him complete the task. It took seven divers, two models and a slew of other people who wouldn’t mind working in the uncomfortable situation of being underwater. Of course finding regular models to hold their breath wasn’t easy. With help from the rest of his team he was able to find two that would be outfitted in gorgeous gowns (glamorous, right?) but also tied to a shipwreck (not so glamorous). Wong also needed to find a designer who wouldn’t mind having their clothes pretty much ruined for the shoot. He worked with Bali-based designer Ali Charisma, who generously offered up a few runway outfits.

The end results called “Forgotten,” are simply incredible. The photos are truly magnificent because of the natural light, gorgeous gowns and stunning models. Not the mention the background is like nothing we’ve ever seen before. We give Wong and his crew major props. On top of all of this, according to HuffPost Style, one photo is being sold to help a 4-year-old girl with a degenerative brain disease.
