Series: Reflections

In Alex Sher’s “Salsa” we are entranced in the spiraling movements of the topless dancer encased in vibrant reds and electric blues. The nude woman clutches the fabric to her body as she twirls. Feet upon feet, legs upon legs, we cannot help but recall the surrealist masters who captured their love of the sensual female nature into distorted shapes and forms. Caught in a split second of rapid motion, her body becomes a mirage.

“Salsa” is a part of Alex Sher’s popular series REFLECTIONS underwater photographs that could be almost mistaken for abstract paintings as they bring up recollections of masterpieces by Picasso, Dali or Gustav Klimt. In fact REFLECTIONS are straight photographic capturing of the water’s surface from below, with a submerged underwater camera. The photographs freeze natural momentary reflections in water surface the unique kaleidoscopic fragmentations of human body into nearly unrecognizable forms.

It is these bold accents of color, mesmerizing textures, dramatic lines, and distinctive distortions that make Sher’s works unique highly advisable masterpieces.
