Moscow-based underwater photographer and marine biologist Alexander Semenov captures gorgeous pictures of marine creatures that look like otherworldly beings.
I’m marine biologist, specializing in invertebrate animals. (…) I’m a professional underwater photographer with 10+ years of experience. My key specialization is scientific macro photography in natural environments. This approach makes it possible to observe animals that cannot be properly studied under laboratory conditions, such as soft-bodied planktonic organisms or stationary life forms living on the seafloor. My personal goal is to study underwater life through camera lenses and to boost people’s interest in marine biology. I do this by sharing all my findings through social media and in real life through public lectures, movies, exhibitions and media events.Alexander Semenov
