Mood changes of the sea. Waterfall Underwater
DESCRIPTIONMost of the wave photographs are taken above water from a shore. The series "Mood changes of the sea" was taken on scuba dives during the storm.
The pictures do not fit ordinary underwater photography because they investigate the surface and not the deep of the sea. This is a view suitable to underwater creatures that would have curiosity about the world beyond their natural environment as humans are curious about the world under the surface.
In the photos I try to visualize my underwater experience and share it with the viewer. Looking at the images the viewer experiences waves like the creatures of the sea and feel more responsible for the safety of their amazing world.
AUTHORAlexej is a passionate diver and an underwater photographer. His photographs depict the beauty and richness of the underwater world and the horrors of man-made ocean pollution. Especially the series like “The Human cares“ and “New cosmos underwater“ are collections of photographs that serve as a wake-up call to society to finally realize how severe the aftermath of their thoughtless actions is, that drive forward the climate change, species extinction and the pollution of the waters.
Alexej was born in Kharkiv, Ukraine. Inspired by his mother’s photographs, he started photographing in his childhood. His subsequent years were driven by his other passion — aircrafts. He obtained a diploma in rocket engineering & information technologies and realized his creative potential in building complex computer systems in the Ukraine and Germany. Alexej works for SIXT, one of the world’s biggest and most successful technology-driven mobility companies.
