Experienced Scuba Diver Shares Seafaring Sights
Photos capturing the fascinating life and habitat of sea creatures will be making an appearance
at the Jemez Fine Art Gallery in a showing from March 24th to the 30th.
The photographs were taken by an Albuquerque Engineer and Researcher,
who is an avid scuba diver, traveling the waters of the world,
snapping portraits of life under the sea.
From sea turtles playing tug-a-war over dinner to speedy and elusive squids,
underwater photographer James Cox has a plethora of pictures of the ocean’s wildlife.
His gallery show will feature photographs taken in the Dutch Antilles but will also include
shots taken in the British Virgin Islands, Hawaii, California, and Florida.
Contrary to his day job and family life in Albuquerque’s high desert, multiple times a year he enjoys the very humid hobby of scuba diving in the tropics. From risky cavern dives to night dives, Jim has been breathing-in the adventures of exploring underwater life over the span of 43 years. His first underwater photographs were taken in the 70’s with a “snap-shot camera” in a waterproof housing. For the past eleven years Jim added a new challenge to his pastime and purchased equipment to obtain artistic photographs of underwater life. He’s now thrilled to present his work at the Jemez Fine Art Gallery.
His work can also be purchased through his HydroPhotic Etsy boutique.
