Los Angeles-based photographer Mallory Morrison’s Water series captures the delicate beauty of the submerged female form. Her underwater photography of these women in their elaborate attire is like a collection of stills from a dream. There’s an incredibly surreal quality to her work that plays with weightlessness, subtle movements, and graceful poses.
It’s no surprise that Morrison has twenty-four years of dance experience as her images exude a melodic elegance in movement. There is a clear understanding of the human body, even under the pressures of water. The photographer works with professional dancers, challenging them and herself to capture the essence of weightlessness.
