ALBUM OF UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY
HEADING FOR ABU FANDERA
Cover: hard, matt
Paper: art paper
For many years photography has shaped the way people look at the world - from the ones behind the camera, to the ones viewing the pictures. Each picture has its own energy, story, and is always interpreted differently by individuals. Nowadays this type of artistic expression plays a vital role in our lives and can have a huge influence on many different areas of it. Since we are surrounded and bombarded by a plethora of visual stimuli, it is important to capture moments that are aesthetically pleasing and have a certain intimacy to it.
The underwater photography meets these requirements. The audience is able to relax and reflect, all while stimulating multiple senses that bring color into their lives. It allows us all, for a moment or two, to break away from our sometimes grey reality and dive into a world full of new sensations and undiscovered areas. Additionally it lets us to take a look at a completely different reality and to see the world from many new perspectives.
The underwater world hides a lot of secrets, which we are able to discover due to modern day technology but also with the help and experience of photographically skilled licensed divers. This rich and varied world is now accessible even to those who are unable or not necessarily want to dive into its depth on their own.
All photos posted in this album were taken during the diving safari, organized by the Warsaw diving club “buddy.pl” and in cooperation with the Egyptian base of United Divers from Safaga. By Ramadan 3 boat we went to Abu Fandera, which is located in the far south, on the border with Sudan. Safari in the far south of Egypt assures its participants diving among some of the most beautiful reefs in the Red Sea: Abu Galawa, Dolphin Reef (Sataya) and St. George. John's. St. John's Reef is located about 450 km from Hurghada and is one of the southernmost dive sites in Egypt. What we can admire here, is the effect of the extraordinary expedition to the reefs of the South.
