The self-taught photographer Katerina Bodrunova has delved beneath the water's surface for her 'Underwater Tango' collection. Bodrunova speaks of transcendence when referencing her work, noting that "Sometimes we can change the space around us to to fit our ideas..." The dancers embrace this very concept as they swerved elegantly through the dark blue waves.

The romantic pair are on point here, seldom missing a beat despite the difficulties presented by this artistic project. This can be observed in the bubbles that are found floating gracefully towards the shore.

This challenging set is typical of a Bodrunova series. She aims to defy gravity, physics and time by presenting her subjects in twisted or upside down positions, often hanging rhythmically off cliffs or unfathomable spots.
