Hypnotizing Portraits Of Siamese Fighting Fish By Visarute Angkatavanich

Even though these photographs look like pieces from a surreal art series, they are real photo portraits of the marvelous Siamese fighting fish, taken by passionate Bangkok-based photographer and fish enthusiast Visarute Angkatavanich.

The Siamese fighting fish, also known as betta (Betta splendens), is native to the Mekong basin of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. They are popular as aquarium fish for their breathtaking beauty, despite their famously aggressive nature.

No wonder, then, that Angkatavanich was hooked on photographing them since the very first time he encountered them at a fish show three years ago, as he told Popular Photography. The fishes in his hypnotizing photographs look like they’re suspended in the air rather than swimming in water thanks to the sleek and elegant look of the perfectly black background.
