Aaron Ansarov photographs Portuguese man-of-war by placing them on a makeshift light table to capture their translucence. He then mirrors them in Photoshop, resulting in something he describes as “nature’s Rorschach test”.
This underwater fashion shoot with whale sharks was a collaboration between photographers Shawn Heinrichs and Kristian Schmidt to raise awareness about conservation.
About the project:
This November I teamed up with fashion/wildlife photographer Kristian Schmidt to redefine how the world views threatened marine species. I first met Kristian on a whale shark trip with our friend and ally Richard Branson and conservation organization WildAid (an NGO focused in reducing demand for endangered species), and we were immediately captivated by each others work. Recognizing that people only protect what they care about, we hatched a plan that would combine my underwater and marine life photography expertise with Kristian’s mastery of creative fashion photography.
