Jill Greenberg’s latest work isn’t as controversial as her last snaps of crying babies or a bloody Senator John McCain, but it sure is beautiful. The photographer’s latest series Glass Ceiling is yet another example of her undeniable talents in digital surrealism and colour manipulation.

What ensues is a glorious lesson in the colourful, the soft, and the dreamlike, as well as every angelic colour under the sun. It’s also a lesson in holding your breath and flapping your arms around (Michael Hutchence not included). The series captures the world’s most oestrogen-heavy sport: synchronised swimming. Yep, chuck on your bathing caps, we’re going for a dip… in stilettos. And you thought that was just for ladies of good-breeding!
