Unearthly, heavenly and dream like would be the perfect words to describe this incredible image by Jennifer Kapala. I specifically love the texture of the dress almost coming off the subject and the way underwater photography creates the magic of levitation, one that Jennifer knows all too well how to work into an image that makes us pause. Her underwater work doesn’t feel like its underwater or like we are watching someone submerge themselves. She creates total art our of the ripples and the way she works her self into a beautiful composition. We cannot wait to Showcase Jennifer”s work among so many other talented Artist.
