The underworld is inspiring today, particularly the underwater scenes captured by sea-obsessed photographer Alexander Semenov. While he previously photographed captured invertebrates in his lab, he now goes on dives to see marine life in its natural habitat. After 10 days in the Red Sea, attempting to avoid throngs of tourists boats, Semenov photographed multiple species of jellyfish, including the Aurelia aurita, Leucothea comb jelly, Pegea confederata, and Cyclosalpa, respectively. Semenov has also ventured into the White Sea, coping with intense cold and claustrophobia to achieve photos of the ice ceiling cracking under the heat of the sun, producing “huge pieces of ice that glow from the inside”. Semenov’s unique angles and different perspective allow us to view our world from the bottom up; to see the sea (if you will) in a whole new way. Breathtaking photos are below, and also be sure to visit his website for more water-related projects!
