No 5 “Giants” December 15 2012
Cover by Bartosz Strozynski
FROM THE EDITORS
When underwater photographers think of scuba diving with giants, there are a few usual suspects that come to mind—like whales, sharks and manta rays.
But photography is all about trying to be different, and so should a photography magazine. That’s why, in this issue, we feature images of the lesser-photographed giants, like walruses (“Swimming with Giants”), anacondas (“Adventures with Anacondas”), and even grizzly bears (“Fishing Grizzlies”). Of course, having said that, we didn’t know what to think when we received images of swimming pigs (“Eye to Eye with Giants”)!
On a sentimental note, this is the final issue of our first year. We’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the world’s most well respected underwater photographers, as well as some of the industry’s rising stars. We’ve covered underwater fashion, cutting-edge approaches to underwater photography, and paid homage to those that push the extremes of the craft. With every new issue our contributors continue to astound us with their imaginative, fearless and tireless approaches to underwater photography. As long as there are photographers willing to push the limits, and to create totally new images, borne from new ideas, we will continue to produce a platform to share their underwater art.
Thanks to all our photographers, supporters, and readers for an incredible inaugural year. We can’t wait to see what you’ll shoot next.
