KELLY HSIAO, Underwater Photographer/Artist
“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.” -Joseph Campbell
Inspired by the serene escape of the water, Kelly combines lyrical moments of sensuality and grace in her photography. Using water as her canvas, her images create magical realism that seems to transcend time and space. The composition and light capture figures as if suspended in flight, reflections lead to otherworldly dimensions. Often inspired by mythical themes, her subjects exude a quiet strength, innocence, and wonder.
"Water is meant to flow and I believe so are we. We are ever changing, evolving beings in our nature. Those moments when we feel engaged and living "in the flow" are the universal feelings I hope to capture and inspire."
Kelly graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA in Photography in 2000. Currently based in Maui, HI, her photography has been exhibited in galleries and by private collectors in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, and Madrid, Spain.
