Rotterdam-based photographer Claire Droppert has an intriguing series titled ‘Sand Creatures’ featuring sand clouds captured in mid-air.

In her photos, heavy piles of inanimate grains come alive to form weightless sculptures that have a graceful, balletic beauty. If you look closely, you can discern animal-like shapes in the bursts of sand, such as a bull, a hare and a fish.

It is the first instalment of her ‘Gravity’ project that “seeks to capture earth’s different elements and let them stand out in their natural surroundings using moments of zero gravity.”

Check out more photos below and follow the project here.
