The red enigma that lies beneath the surface

There’s no easy dive one can take when shooting underwater, but as struggle turns into magic and a sweeping sense of serenity takes over, what lies beneath the surface suddenly becomes worthy of strange fascination. Adding up to his underwater fantasy universe, photographer Michael David Adams captures the otherworldly beauty of Ali Collier, the red enigma that gently awakens the submerged realm.

Hair like fire and lips like burning flames infuse the weightlessness of the underwater world with surreal beauty, the kind that leaves you breathless, granting you’re not the one floating under the water’s surface. And although there’s no sign of delicate fabrics moving underwater, the vivid make-up created by Mary Irwin is sufficient to keep the enchantment alive and going.

Surrendering to the watery depths, there’s no telling on where the mystery ends and where the understanding begins. It’s all part of the majestic illusion that keeps on feeding our imagination.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
