Underwater Art Photography

Libor Spacek was born in 1966 in Czech Republic. As a diving instructor and professional photographer he came up with an interesting idea of bringing studio methods down under the water´s surface. The result is a unique photo collection of ?Underwater Fine Art Nudes? which has been exhibited and published worldwide to great acclaim ...

A substantial element of Libor´s shooting are the models. But these models have to have a very special relation to water plus swimming skills and endurance (and fantasy as well). A three hour long session in the cold water is not easy ...

Kawase Hasui

Known for his exquisite landscape prints, Kawase Hasui was one of the most prolific and talented shin hanga artists of the early 20th century. He designed around six hundred prints total, mainly for the publisher Watanabe Shozaburo, although he also worked for several others briefly. Many people feel that Hasui's most original work was done at the beginning of his career. Unfortunately, the blocks for these early prints were destroyed in the devastating 1923 earthquake and they were never reprinted. Consequently, Hasui's pre-earthquake prints are among the rarest and most sought-after shin hanga.

Verne was noted for writing about cosmic, atmospheric, and underwater travel long before air travel and submarines were commonplace and before practical means of space travel had even been devised.
