Poetic Photos of a Beautiful Bride Submerged Underwater

Taiwan-based photographer Ada Wang captures the poetic flow of a young bride's descent underwater. Though the model appears empty and resigned in her facial expressions throughout most of the shoot, she emanates an elegant sadness that speaks volumes. Her rooted somberness is reflected in the sheer image of a bride submerged in water.

On a day that is often revered as being the happiest and most memorable day in a person's life, their wedding day, this young woman is stuck spending it in liquid confinement. Wang's subject is trapped in a proverbial glass case of emotions as she delves deeper and deeper into a dark abyss, clutching onto her wilting bouquet.
