In mid-March, Alexander Semyonov's personal photo exhibition "White Sea Monsters", dedicated to the inhabitants of the White Sea, opened at the Darwin Museum.
Alexander Semyonov - "modern Captain Cousteau", a professional underwater photographer and marine biologist, as well as the head of the diving service of the White Sea Biological Station of Moscow State University. Armed with knowledge, patience and modern equipment, he plunges into the water column again and again to reveal to the world the true beauty of the underwater universe.
At the exhibition at the Darwin Museum, you can touch the world of bright, cute inhabitants of the White Sea.
Surprising, but true: even in such a cold, northern and slightly s alty sea for most oceanic organisms, interesting creatures live. Here, spreading its wings, a sea angel slowly swims in front of us. Nearby, as if in the wind, red curtains are swaying in the water column - the oral lobes of the jellyfish Cyanei. And somewhere below, closer to the bottom, restless herds of sea goats graze.
Photos by Alexander Semyonov will take you to another planet where sea monsters live their outlandish lives and only for a moment are shown from the depths, snatched by a camera flash.
