It's nice to think that those underwater scenes in Atonement were filmed on the site of a lovely English manor. Or that the fiery scene in Elizabeth: The Golden Age, in which horses and seamen are jettisoned into the Thames, was shot along the famous river. The reality, though, is a lot less romantic. Those scenes, and many more, were actually filmed in a giant tank at a place called Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom.

It's one of the largest studios in England and the place to go when in need of a watery scene. Sharon Stone, Keira Knightley and Guinness have all been there, and Phoebe Rudomino has photographed them. Taking versatility to the extreme, she has photos ranging from ethereal ballerinas in Parisian parlors to horses and chubby babies. A selection of her underwater work will be displayed at London's Movieum throughout October, in an exhibition titled "Water on the Lens."
