Check out more pics after the break along with some words about the project from the creative team.
Q: What made you want to create the mermaid theme photos?
A: The team started preparing in spring for the summer project this year. After some discussion, we decided that the mermaid would be the most representative creature for summer time. It took us about 4 months to get everything ready.
Q: How long did it take to make the mermaid’s costume?
A: It’s 13 hours of work without any sleep, and sewed purely by hand.
Q: How would you describe your work and passion for fantasy photography?
A: It’s almost common to see mermaid photos in summer time. There is a lot of mermaid theme photography in Taiwan, but you don’t really get to see a lot of colors in them, also they often aim to take more realistic pictures. Sofia wanted to do something different and really show herself in her work. She used colorful fabrics, huge amounts of muslin to create a dreamy romantic look. The photographer Pheonix Lin has always love and have a respect for nature, he simply step back and let nature work it’s wonder and let the spirit of freeness roam free.
