Dancing a proper tango is hard enough on land, but these dancers make it look effortless, despite the fact that they are fully submerged. Though I was not able to find out how Russian photographer Katerina Bodrunova pulled off these remarkable images, the emphasis should be on the beauty of the series, rather than the clever logistics behind her method.
Bordunova is reportedly a self-taught photographer whose bio states that she seeks to “deft conventional physics and show [my] subjects as weightless objects with an ability to transcend space and time.” Even though they are weightless in the water, the dancers must remain buoyant long enough to strike a pose, and the intensity seen in their faces and within the language of their perfectly angled bodies is striking. Since 2009, Bodrunova has garnered an impressive list of international publications and awards for her work.
