These photographs of Koi ponds in China are as beautiful as they are mind boggling. She created this series by taking eight pictures of Koi swimming and then combining the images into 13 different ones (based on Wallace Stevens’ 13 ways of looking at a blackbird). The results are dense, blue-black watery backgrounds with bursts of colour as the Koi appear near the surface. The scale of the fish change within each combination creating depth and layering.
