Under the Sea Photography Exhibit

By on April 5, 2012

The display includes four color photographs of wildlife inhabiting Biscayne National Park’s waters. The photos were selected from among the winners of the annual underwater photography contests sponsored by The University of Miami/Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Sciences over the past 7 years. Many of the images were taken by UM/RSMAS students and faculty, often as part of or incidental to their research. Under the Sea is part of a continuing effort by the park to blur the line between science and art. “The 1871 scientific expedition to Yellowstone included in its ranks painter Thomas Moran and photographer William Henry Jackson,” said park ranger Gary Bremen. “Their work helped inspire Congress to establish Yellowstone as the world’s first national park. Painters, photographers and other artists carry on that tradition today at national parks across the country, including here at Biscayne.” The visitor center is open 9am to 5:30pm. with free admission. Under the Sea runs through June 3rd. You can see other winning photos on the RSMAS website, www.rsmas.miami.edu/outreach/ underwater-photography.
