National Award-winning photographer Ian Wallace is one of Tasmania’s most successful landscape photographers.
This application is an extension of his third book "Seaweed - art meets science"
I love to scuba dive and in Tasmania, I believe we are blessed with some of the most scenic and ecologically unique underwater environments in the world.
This App is a collection of images from the exhibition ‘Seaweed - art meets science’. These images are the closest I can get to describing how I feel whilst exploring the seascapes around the Tasmanian coast.
This App will enable you to:
- View all 24 images from the exhibition
- Read information about the marine algae
- Save images to your iPhone to use as your wallpaper
- Email the images to your friends
- Find out exactly where each image was taken (using Maps)
- Find out more about this project
- Find out more about Ian Wallace
- Email Ian Wallace directly from the App.
Whilst enjoying these images, try to imagine being there; you are completely weightless; your body enveloped in the cool, dark and salty waters of the ocean. The only sounds are your respirator, the consistent, rhythmic pulse of your breath escaping to the surface and the occasional cracking and popping of air equalising in your inner ear. You can feel tonnes of water pressure exerting its weight on your body and you are at the mercy of your equipment, the environment and its inhabitants.
On the 28th March 1960 , in an interview with Time magazine, Jacques-Yves Cousteau stated:
“ Buoyed by water, he can fly in any direction - up, down, sideways - by merely flipping his hand. Under water man becomes an archangel.”
Download this App and become an archangel with me.
