Haunting Beauty: Meg Cowell Photographs Ghostly Gowns

Australian photographer Meg Cowell explores her own femininity by summoning spectral figures in exquisite dresses from the past. Cowell’s new hauntingly beautiful photo series To the Surface features one-of-a-kind period gowns floating elegantly in the dark. In order to capture these seemingly otherworldly photographs, the photographer submerges the garments under water and photographs them against a black velvet backdrop as they emerge towards the surface (hence the title).

I’m pretty sure it won’t take long before this look is replicated in the pages of a European fashion magazine.
