A Dancer’s Beautiful Dream-Like Self-Portraits

Combine a dancer’s grace with a photographer’s discerning eye, and what you get are these enchantingly surreal pictures.

Dancer-turned-photographer Ingrid Endel started shooting self-portraits after a knee injury that ended her dance career prematurely.

Given her history as a dancer, it was only a matter of time before she started experimenting with the inclusion of dance elements in her photographs.

The result is a collection of stunning images—featuring mystical characters like fairies and magical butterflies—that seems to have come straight out of a fantastical dream.

If you like her work, you may want to vote for her at the Art Takes Miami competition.
