Stunning underwater photography from Russian born; Bahamas based Elena Kalis. It’s amazing how effective a certain camera angle can be; turning the surface of the water into something that seems solid and reflective.
For a model, Elena chose her ten-year-old daughter Sacha, who was "the same age as Carroll's Alice. She is a natural mermaid and a perfect little underwater model. Her brother and friends participated as well, as it involved toys and props.
"I had to keep shootings short and fun so it took about two years to capture a collection of images for this project.”
