Writers and artists often use images of large bodies of water to symbolize the unknown. One look at nature photographer Jorge Cervera Hauser’s photography, though, and it seems that the ocean and its inhabitants are something Hauser knows incredibly well:

Hauser's stunning underwater pictures builds on a body of impressive work. He has held several prestigious titles during his career, including ambassador for the Discovery Channel’s campaign “Celebrando México” (Celebrating Mexico), producer of the nature documentary México Pelágico, co-director at the non-profit Pelagic Life, and executive producer at Calypso Media.

Recently making this underwater photography gallery available on Behance, Hauser invites us to bear witness to a world that few are able to experience. The work isn't just about aesthetics, though; Hauser’s work also advocates for the importance of wildlife conservation.
