Fishes captured in all their grace, with an extreme simplicity, by the Thai photographer Visarute Angkatavanich. Native from tropical freshwater of Southeast Asia, the fighting fish is still raised for animal fighting in some Asian countries (wikipedia)…
“fishes swim in air. swallow clouds shaped like the atlantic. fishes circle her head. mimic stars after collision. fishes grow mouths so hungry. they devour her whole. fishes die. the skies become silent. the sky cannot fall. for it is floating further up. a balloon whose helium never runs out.”
MJL, this is what it feels like to fall in love with a man who loves another (request)

Bangkok-based photographer Visarute Angkatavanich (previously) continues to capture some of the most elegant portraits of fish we’ve seen. His intimate, crystal-clear photos of Siamese fighting fish (betta) make it seem as though they are suspended in air instead of water. Angkatavanich recently told Popular Photography that he only started photographing the fish after encountering them for the first time three years ago at a fish show and has since become obsessed with the different species which vary greatly in size, shape, and color patterns. Limited edition prints of his work are now available through La Lanta Fine Art.
