Cheryl Walsh is an award-winning underwater photographer who uses surreal imagery to create scenes that look like they’re straight out of a fairytale. While underwater photography is a complicated task to execute, Walsh finds that it helps unleash her creativity and artistic vision. There is a peace she finds working in the water with the models, and instead of complicated sets and lighting, all she needs is her camera. The water helps add a natural movement to the finished pieces and brings out the costume’s colors. Take a look at these stunning works of art for yourself!
1. Queen Catrina
This costume is inspired by traditional Day of the Dead celebrations.
This photo reminds me of Alice falling through the rabbit hole.
3. A royal portrait
This model looks like a French queen posing for her portrait.
4. Couture mermaid
This interpretation of a “couture” mermaid varies in style from Walsh’s other mermaid photos, but it still has the same dreamy effect.
