California-based photographer Dana Trippe recently released a photo series that makes use of the refraction effect. Although the idea of photographing women in sensual positions is nothing new, this series offers an unusual perspective on the female body.

In her 'Living in a Fishbowl' series, Trippe explores the idea of how we perceive the female body. Her photos utilize the refraction effect to reverse each woman's body and reflect it in a fishbowl. The unusual technique is designed to give the viewer a different perspective on the female body by containing the full image inside the fishbowl. The effect is both eerie and engaging at the same time.

Trippe's photography demonstrates how photographers can play with perception in order to turn a traditional subject into something unexpected.
