The Explorer

The idea of exploring a new underwater realm came to me as I have always loved snorkelling and been lucky enough to go diving too many years ago in some of the most beautiful and species-rich waters of the planet. I wanted to get across that feeling of overwhelm when so many colours shapes and textures are surrounding you that it’s hard to pick out individual things. The sensation is that you’re surrounded by a confusing beauty of mystery and intrigue. The result is an uplifting image where the diver is more intrigued than threatened by the surrounding world.
