A new series of images from the Kermadec trip. Taken in the specimen vaults of NIWA in Wellington these are photos of deep sea invertebrates from the Kermadec trench. I was fascinated by the distortions created by the jars and bags they are stored in. It reminded me of NIWA submarine video footage (some of which appears in this video by Bruce Foster) and it struck me that it is very rare for us to view these animals without thick glass between us – it highlights we really do live in different worlds.
For sale: These are available framed in 307mm diameter black round frames – they look fantastic as a set. Printed on archival rag. See the Kermadec works for sale page
