'Living Lights of the Ocean' is a collaborative avant-garde photo series which depicts neon dream-like underwater environments. Famous costume designer Roman Ermakov paired with photographer Dasha Yastrebova, set designer Venera Kazarova and image editor Alex Tikhonov to create this immersive representation of oceanic life.

The creative team behind this fascinating underwater shoot spent months studying the strange creatures living in the dark ocean and wanted to illuminate their existence. The shots were created by dressing and posing models in elaborately crafted costumes.

Photographer Dasha Yastrebova described the shoot as a creative endeavor that she couldn't pass up, saying; "For me as a photographer this shoot was a unique opportunity to make a complex, carefully crafted project, that hardly anyone will ever order from you, but which can grow into an exhibition."
