Supreme Tranquility Under the Sea

The ocean is like an entirely different world. That’s why underwater ocean photography is always captivating and intriguing, there’s always something new and unexpected to be found. Enric Adrian Gener’s photography is especially interesting because of his ability to capture human forms as they peacefully interact with the clear blue waters.

When asked why the ocean interested him the most, Gener had this to say:

“First of all, I would like to say that I love taking pictures, as well as diving. I enjoy both experiences separately and I adore feeling that I’m in the sea. It doesn’t matter if it’s at 70 meters or half a meter from the surface. It’s inconceivable to go to the beach without my mask, just as it is unthinkable to go to the mountains and leave your eyes at home. In short, being able to do both things I love at the same time, makes underwater photography something I will never get bored of.

“Under the sea you are in another world. The inspiration starts once I’m submerged, embraced by it. The environment around you always has its influence. When you’re in this huge liquid medium, unable to breathe or feel gravity, with different light conditions and rules, strength inspires you and makes you think different.”

Gener had this final quote for us. “The sea does not belong to despots. Upon its surface men can still exercise unjust laws, fight, tear one another to pieces, and be carried away with terrestrial horrors. But at thirty feet below its level, their reign ceases, their influence is quenched, and their power disappears. Ah! sir, live–live in the bosom of the waters! There only is independence! There I recognize no masters! There I am free!” – Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.
