Jacques Cousteau, the father of Scuba Diving, once said, “The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever”, and nothing can be truer.
As a small island dweller, the sea is always within touching distance. It is a familiar backdrop to my daily routine and the subject of innumerable images. Through my pictures, be they vistas in the macro or micro, I attempt to convey the texture and mood of my watery subject by using long exposures, intentional camera movements and panning techniques.
The sight of gathering clouds signals the end of the searing summer heat, and the sea takes on the darkened hues of the changing season, opening up different photographic possibilities. So I wait with bated breath for the stirring of Kymopoleia, and I look forward to going down to the sea again.
