These stunning images show a group of aerial artists lighting up the night sky.
Taken by photographer Casey Grimley, 37, the photos show pole dancers and aerial artists at various locations in southern California, including the iconic Joshua Tree National Park.
Casey said that the images were the result of thousands of hours of pain-staking choreography and rehearsal by each of the dancers.
One set shows a dancer carefully balanced at the top of a pole with the breathtaking night’s sky behind her lit up by thousands of stars.
He said: “People have said they’re ‘absolutely incredible’,’breathtaking”, ‘stunning’, ‘beautiful’, and all the other synonyms in between.
“These shoots area tonne of work, not just on my part either, these dancers have spent hundreds and thousands of hours training and conditioning to learn these moves, so mad props to all the incredibly talented dancers I’ve got to work with.”
