A depth most would drown in
The mermaid is one of the most iconic creatures of all time.
She is often depicted as a strong, supernatural woman who radiates power, beauty and self-confidence.
In her photographic work, Elisa Maenhout goes in search of the fascination this phenomenon arouses. She photographs people who identify and identify with this mythical creature.
The mermaids and men form a close, but global community.
In a self-created, parallel imaginary reality they find a place to be completely themselves.
They dive into a dream world, free of problems, and temporarily leave reality behind.
Framed between the surface of the water and the bottom, the mermaids move on in their own world, where the light shines differently and gravity seems an illusion.
