Before Tim Burton brought us his modern twisty tale of Alice in Wonderland, Russian born photographer Elena Kalis decided to put her own spin on this classic by shooting her own version . . . underwater. With 12-year-old daughter Alexandra as her model, Elena at once captures the youthful joy and innocence of swimming, stories, and surprise.
Having only specialized in underwater photography for a little over four years, she mixes her love of Brothers Grimm fairytales with the beauty of her now home-nation of the Bahamas to create an underwater fantasy world. Welcome to a world of magic, dreams, and imagination!
In addition to these beautiful fairy-tale pictures, Elena also creates some other really beautiful underwater photos. Read this interview about her work and then check out her website and Facebook for some more stunning creations.
