These ethereal captures from Hungarian photographer Bence Bakony are other-worldly.

The images feature women in billowing dresses rising weightlessly into the air in a series of lavish and opulent Victorian style buildings. Some other captures show a man in a black suit being caught off guard as he floats towards a staircase. The elegance of the women and men captured in these suspended reality photographs is enchanting.

These images entitled 'Floating' indicate the popular style of floating and levitation photography in China and the middle east. Photographers like to take pictures of people floating without using camera editing or Photoshop. Photographers have been known to get creative to achieve their shots, some even get the subjects to jump into mid air. Bence Bakony says his subjects "seem to be floating in a surreal freedom of their own making."
