The hazy portraits found in the Alex Wein 'Soldiers And Sirens' series are compelling. Taken by the Baltimore-born artist Alex Wein, who is a recent graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, each of the black and white shots are beautifully composed. Wein's work is tremendously diverse as there is a thread in all of images between reality and the surreal. Wein manages to capture the strong movements of the models in each of the smoke-filled shorts.

Through the cloudiness, the models' bodies are outlined, and the physicality of their motions emotionally charge the photographs. The silvery smoke covering has the ability to create a gracefulness in the models' empowering stances. The Alex Wein 'Soldiers And Sirens' series appears to be freeze framed from a dazzling ballet.
