If you're familiar with the work of photographer Asger Carlsen, you might be surprised to learn that The Cut enlisted him to photograph women's resort fashion for its latest issue.

When we think of resort collections, we think of pastels, mimosas and yachts; the bizarrely distorted and surreal images that Carlsen tends to produce aren't anywhere near our radar. But that's exactly why this collaboration is a brilliant move; it takes our conceptions of resort fashion and turns them on their head, creating something sensational and different.

Carlsen was given free reign to photograph the fashion any which way he pleased, resulting in this nightmarish collection of images that will haunt and mesmerize viewers with its powerful execution.
