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.
