Breathtaking undersea photos by alexander semenov

  1. 1. Breathtaking Undersea Photos by Alexander Semenov
  2. 2. • Alexander Semenov is the head of the scientific divers team at the White Sea Biological Station (WSBS) in Russia. He’s also a prolific undersea photographer that has graciously shared his incredible work online on countless sites (Flickr, Behance, LiveJournal, 500px) so others may study and marvel at the beauty of the underwater world.• Graduating from Lomonosov’s Moscow State University in the department of Zoology, Alexander specialized in the study of invertebrate animals. While his career has led him around the world, many of the shots in his portfolio (and below) are from his work at the WSBS which is located near the Polar Circle on the coast of Kandalaksha Bay of the White Sea.• The location is remote and the waters are frigid but the biological diversity speaks for itself. Many of the creatures he captures are rare and uncommon so his work is of tremendous value to reasearchers, biologists and scientists. For the rest of us, we are simply thankful that there is such a talented photographer out there capturing the underwater beauty of our planet. The Sifter salutes you Mr. Alexander Semenov! Please keep up the fantastic work and thank you for sharing with the rest of us!•
