photo stories - elena kalis

Elena started experimenting with underwater photography upon
moving to the Bahamas.  She enjoys working in this medium
because of the amount of surprise and unpredictability it offers.
Shapes change, colors shift in the cast of the water mixed with
sunlight.  Even the models offer unpredictability, giving happy
accidents of pose and expression.  Kalis listens to the
environment and doesn't push her models or the situation...  As
a writer doesn't push his or her Muse, or it will scurry away.

There are people all over the world who carry the mermaid
inside them, that otherworldly beauty and longing and desire
that made her reach for heaven when she lived in the darkness
of the sea.  - Carolyn Turgeon, Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale
