"From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free." - Jacques-Yves Cousteau

With marine bio-diversity unparalleled elsewhere on the planet, the Indo Pacific stretches from the western and central Pacific ocean, across Indonesia, to include the tropical Indian Ocean. It is a natural wonder; a kaleidoscope of colour, collaboration and perilous in one breath.

Long before man laid claim to it’s resources, the sea here flourished with life. Now it is only with patience and persistence that the wonderments of this vast region can be found.

These photographs encompass only a minute fraction of the breadth of life that inhabit these seas. Without efforts to conserve and protect the wonderful creatures who call this place home, we may soon realize how intertwined our fates have become.
