Elena Kalis – underwater photography

Elena Kalis was born in Moscow (Russia) but has, for the past ten years, lived on a small island in the Bahamas with her husband and two children. She has an education in traditional art, but has recently been following her interest in photography.  Over the past year she has been doing some underwater projects with her children and their friends.  Some of Elena’s images have been used for books, magazines and CD covers, and have also appeared in print magazines and online publications. Elena Kalis imagined an underwater version of the classic Alice in Wonderland tale, only that this time it’s Alice in… Waterland! The results are some really fascinating photos that not only transmit all the surrealism and imagination of the original story, but take it a step forward. Between a mermaid and a survivor of a shipwreck, caught between fantasy and reality, the new Alice looks more beautiful than ever. read more
