Wayne Levin – Stories Of The Sea In Black and White

The picture above looks like the brave young man has fallen down from inferno straight through a fiery bellowing cloud. He’s actually swimming in the sea, going underneath a rolling wave. These photographs have a vintage look to them. They make me feel somewhat nostalgic about something I’ve never even done before…like free diving for example.

While most would choose colour photographs to document the underwater world, not surprising because the sea has beautiful colours to show, Wayne Levin predominantly uses black and white. Black and white photo’s are not instantly beautiful. It takes a real eye in composition, great skill, and knowing what you want to tell through an image to “snap a good pic”.

Levin currently lives in Hawaii. His art has been exhibited widely both nationally and internationally. He has had numerous books published and has a couple of new ones coming up.
