Photographer Elise Swopes' Instagram page has nearly reached 250 000 followers thanks to her inspiring and surreal urban cityscape portraits. The Chicago native captures iconic city scenes and infuses them with gorgeous and sometimes scary elements.

From cascading waterfalls to submerged skylines, the artist's works are both captivating and dreamlike in their aesthetic. In addition to being beautiful to look at, Elise Swopes' Instagram posts also serve as a social commentary on today's fragile environmental state.

Resembling stills from apocalyptic films like '2012' and 'The Day After Tomorrow', her urban cityscape photographs paint a beautiful but dystopian picture of American metropolises and their future. This photo series will appeal to the environmentally conscious art lover and those with an appreciation for surrealist imagery.
