As anyone who has ever tried to dance underwater knows, it’s never as pretty as what these Mark Mawson photos make it to be. Limbs flailing, hair undulating like Medusa’s snakes—it isn’t pretty. But photographer Mark Mawson would have us believe otherwise. His collection of stunning underwater photos make even the most clumsy and awkward person have hope (sort of).

The Mark Mawson photos here show models in gorgeous gowns completely submerged underwater in dance-like poses. Well, except for one who has her feet chained to a weight—but she still looks beautifully graceful, doesn’t she? Stats for Underwater Dancetography Trending: Older & Buzzing
