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!

For all you not briefed in The Big F (shame on you), this latest series can also be seen as a commentary upon women’s status in society. It’s not just Greenberg’s choice of action that achieves this – a dying relic of a more sexist era – but the ladies' borderline-legal age and their very unpractical choice in swimming footwear.

The result is both erotic and childlike, and will have you wondering all over again whether Greenberg is infant a heathen child-basher or alternatively a progressive social commentator. No matter if you think she’s smashed the metaphorical glass ceiling or not, you have to admit those are some real pretty colours.

Failing that, the shot of the chick pulling a wedgie is undeniably priceless.
