Wayne Levin’s otherworldly black-and-white photographs made beneath the surface of the waves have captivated viewers for decades. He has been photographing the land and oceans since the early 1970s. Levin’s images illuminate an entire world: its space, its inhabitants, its weight and its visitors — a profound sense of the sublime.
While celebrating the vast power of the Pacific, Levin's images point to the fragility of a supremely sophisticated and interconnected ecosystem in which humans are increasingly important players. The latest additions to Levin's expansive body of work are images of coral reef bleaching due to warming waters off the Big Island - a haunting and omnipresent counterpoint to the grace and energy of his dolphins, divers and geometric schools of Akule.
