    [Alice in Waterland] by Photographer Elena Kalis


    [Alice in Waterland] is a beautiful series of photographs re-imagining the Lewis Carroll classic underwater. It’s a creation of photographer Elena Kalis, who lives on a small island in The Bahamas, surrounded, she says, [by pristine clear warm water. Underwater is where I spend a lot of time; snorkeling, diving, photographing. It is fascinating how the world changes down below: light, sound, gravity and proportions are different from what we are used to.

    I often feel like I am in another dimension, just like Alice who found herself in a strange place when she fall into the rabbit hole one warm afternoon. A place where reality subsides and the closeness of water envelopes you, where sounds are distant and light plays tricks with your eyes and perception].

    For a model, Kalis chose her ten-year-old daughter Sacha, who was ‘the same age as Carroll’s Alice. She is a natural mermaid and could swim before she could walk; a perfect little underwater model. Her brother and friends were happy to participate as well, as it involved a lot of toys and props to play with. [I had to keep shootings short and fun so it took about two years to capture a collection of images for this project, although I can’t say that it is finished even now. I still have a lot of ideas to try]. (Photos by Elena Kalis)
