A 48-year-old Thai photographer Visarute Angkatavanich captures a beautiful aquatic art portraying Siamese fighting fish (Betta Splendens) in a different way. Against stark contrasts of white and black backgrounds, he creates fantastic photos of these animals using crystalline aquariums, powerful lenses and spectacular lighting. The effect is truly magnificent transforming the fish into magical creatures as though they were hovering in the air instead of water.

After 20 years of working in the commercial field, the artist started the ornamental fish project that was inspired by the memories of his own childhood pet fish. These pieces of art have become a huge success on the Internet, primarily within the gallery of Betta Splends. Although, a greater notoriety came later when the images were introduced in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models as wallpapers.
