Beautiful Photography Reveals The Underwater Complexity of Aquariums
Japanese born landscape photographer
Amano Takashi captures the most
beautiful photographs of aquariums from underwater. Takashi is heavily
influenced by nature and its complexity, and chooses to focus on the small
details within nature and uses large format size cameras and film (up to 8×20
inches). More recently he has spent time educating people on his experience and
knowledge of the natural world, and stresses the importance of looking after and
preserving the natural environment.
Visiting the rainforests of Amazon, Borneo and West Africa as well as travelling
across world to other places of natural outstanding beauty, Takashi has captured
many impressive and beautiful moments. In this series of photographs titled “the
grand nature in a glass”, he captures the small ecosystems within the confined
area of aquariums. Although they are confined, these photographs reveal the
amazing complexity of their ecosystems.
These photographs almost look like scenes from Avatar.
