Floating in Surreal Chaos


Photographer Maria Netsounski, who also goes by “Bulka,” has created a phantasmagorical series employing the art of mid-air suspension. Some images give the appearance of a moment caught in time when things have gone completely haywire. In one, papers get flung in the air while a levitating woman with a pain-stricken expression foresees her fall to come. Others appear more serene, as though the subject lives in an alternate universe where giant exercise balls floating merrily is nothing out of the ordinary. Each frame tells a separate story in Netsounski’s surreal series entitled Passion Dream In-Flight.

Though there appear to be several, unconnected narratives, there is a common aesthetic appeal that links them all. Perhaps it’s the girly charm in each of the dresses, or the little knickknacks that lie about in the background that draws parallels. Whatever it may be, the costuming and set design play equally crucial roles in setting the gravity-defying scenes.
