Must see: Brilliant underwater fashion photography and portraits created by Joburg-based visual artist Ilse Moore.

These brilliant photos were created by Johannesburg-based visual artist and photographer Ilse Moore.

“While my underwater photography often involves commercial shoots, my conceptual work speaks of a subconscious denial of reality. I have always been attracted to surreal imagery. I believe that photography as a medium lends a kind of realism to these ‘fantasies’, allowing it to exist in closer relationship to the viewer. I like that it suggests the possibility of an indiscernible truth. Shooting underwater seemed like the logical next step in finding a balance between the surreal world and my own reality…”
