The blue in black and white

When there is no color in the big blue, photographers of the underwater world need to master composition and the use of lights and shadows. Turning the ocean that we know into a monochrome space requires much more than just removing colors.

With the owner’s permit, we bring you a series of pictures from great underwater artists who are able to turn the general idea that we have of the ocean as a place full of colorful and constantly moving life into another completely different space… but which is still our ocean. With great talent they immerse us in a much more elegant, melancholic, serene, peaceful and even exciting big blue by going far beyond removing color.
