Mallory Morrison's expansive dancing experience shines through in her 'Water' series, which captures the sublime weightlessness of underwater photos. Through the luminescence of water, the captures create a dreamlike world that plays with the concept of reality and the rules that govern it.

Morrison's 'Water' series plays with the idea of captured kinetic force as the subjects are delved into water evoking a melodic feel. With 24 years of dance experience, it's evident that she understands the body and the various forms that convey emotive responses. The effects layered on the captures create an ethereal experience and transform the images into a hybrid piece that combines photography with illustration. The shots that have the subjects grasping balloons is truly remarkable as the translucency of the material encapsulates the light, creating the illusion of an entirely biotic form.
