Ethereal Underwater Photographs Capture Frozen Moments in Time

Kurt Arrigo's underwater photographs are a great reminder that we live in a remarkable world. Passionate about the sea his entire life, Arrigo's love for it is palpable in these strikingly-clear images featuring shoals of fish, graceful dancers, and a majestic Black Stallion horse. Our vantage point is well below the ocean's surface, with deep blues and turquoise that fade as they are penetrated by the sun's rays.

This vibrant work is the perfect mixture of light, color, and atmosphere. It transports us to a fantasy world where weightless moments are frozen in time. It's a truly ethereal experience and a nice escape from the dirty, sad, and gray images that permeate our culture on a daily basis. Taking this visual splendor in, Arrigo's photographs afford us the incredible opportunity to view a part of the world that we might never have been able to see.
