In this exhibition photography has been used as both a scientific tool and as a means of articulating that which lies well beyond the mere objective recording of specimens. The hidden complexity of marine life is revealed through interwoven thematic currents that ebb and flow across the viewer's personal navigation. Biological and environmental conservation, animal behaviour and ecology, and human impact, all emerge as major themes. Vibrantly luminous images of whales breaching, streamlined dolphins gliding, sudden underwater encounters with seals and vast Antarctic landscapes peppered with penguin colonies, are sharply contrasted against current environmental challenges. Exhibition held at Macquarie University Art Gallery, 22 October 2008-10 January 2009.
