Exhibition Description

A Parallel Universe captures the beautiful and fascinating creatures that inhabit our oceans. The most wondrous part of any dive is the moment that the water engulfs my mask as my head slips below the surface. It’s the suspense of the unknown of what lies beneath, the transitional part of moving from one element to the next that feels so magical and the thought of what alien creatures I might encounter. That is what draws me to taking half over half underwater images. I try to convey to the viewer that majestic feeling in a picture format. It’s maybe the best way I can communicate to a non-diver what it’s all about, to marry a wet and unfamiliar world with a dry and more familiar one; to create a window into another universe.
