100 Feet Below Sea Level08.11.2016
On the 8th of November, in Miras International School, Astana, there was an opening ceremony of the unique exhibition of underwater photos entitled “100 Feet Below Sea Level” created by Kazakhstani photographer Ms. Nadezhda Kulagina.
Unique underwater frames, exciting and beautiful worlds of marine life, shipwrecks and rare shots were presented for visitors to admire.
Some people were lucky to see underwater life in all its magnificence. Thanks to the organized exhibition, the students of our school had an opportunity to see what happens in an underwater environment at 100 feet below sea level.
It seems as if it there were a parallel underwater universe of life which is attractive but not accessible to everyone. The underwater environment is charming and at the same time often dangerous. Underwater material for photography is incredibly rich and requires a lot of patience and skills. Anyone who dares to do this, can make pictures of rare beauty or see history itself, submerged beneath the ocean.
That’s why Kulagina Nadezhda’s works include impressive photos and each of them has a range of interesting details including: fascinating facts about marine life, shipwrecks, the little-known details about Second World War events and interesting artifacts.
Nadezhda has dived in many locations including countries such as: Thailand, Indonesia, The Philippines, Egypt, The Cayman Islands and Malta. The author has shared with us that she is dreaming about diving with whales in Mexico and the Arctic Ocean.
