Dive Into The Deep Sea With Alexander Semenov’s Gorgeous Underwater Photography
While many photographers are content to capture terrestrial subjects, Alexander Semenov dives into the oceans’ depths for his photos. Semenov, head of the divers’ team at Moscow State University’s White Sea Biological Station, regularly takes to the water to capture marine life in digital form–big or small, colorful or opaque, Semenov is interested in it all. And it’s not just for aesthetics’ sake: said Semenov to the Washington Post, “My own goal is to study underwater life through camera lenses and to boost people’s interest in marine biology.”
