Together with the organisation Parley for the Oceans, Lumas seeks to help raise awareness for the endangered ecosystem of our seas. Their first collaborative event is the exhibition The Big Blue, presented at the Lumas Gallery in Hamburg from 23 September to 16 October 2016. The show is centred around the works of renowned underwater photographer Jean-Marie Ghislain, and also features images by artists such as David Fleetham and Sheila Rogers.
Throughout his entire life, Ghislain was afraid of the ocean’s dangerous predators. In 2008, he decided to face his fears. Since his first dive with sharks, the Belgian artist has been dedicated to underwater photography as well as protecting marine life. However, it is not just the photographer’s touching personal journey that makes his images so fascinating. Ghislain portrays diverse shark species in atmospheric black and white images, setting new benchmarks in underwater photography. He reveals a previously unseen, almost tender side to these assumed monsters that stoke our collective fears.
