Beautiful Illusion of Synchronized Swimmers in Nature
Wednesday, January 15, 2014 • 10 comments
Natation Synchronisée (Synchronized Swimming) is a fun and creative series of perfectly arranged mannequin legs emerging from water in elaborate upside-down displays created by French photographer Jean-Baptiste Courtier. Being angled and bent in symmetrical patterns, the mannequin legs have produced beautiful formations which reflects against the watery surface. When speaking about the work, Courtier says, "Frankly, I'm quite egoistic in the way I work. I want to have the pleasure of recreating the images that exist in my mind and prefer to let the viewers create [their] own story around the picture." I personally do found beauty in this series of bizarre photos and I hope you do as well.
