Going to Great Depths to Illuminate Hidden Underwater Worlds
Photographer David Doubilet seeks to understand the effects of climate change and human intervention on sea life.
Join National Geographic photographers David Doubilet and Jimmy Chin for a conversation about Doubilet's work by tuning in to our livestream on January 11th at 11:15 A.M. EST.
For photographer David Doubilet, underwater photography is a way of life. Doubilet has been diving since he was eight years old and taking photos underwater since he was twelve. In 2016, Doubilet took to the ocean to discover Cuba's incredible marine reserve, Gardens of the Queen. This massive 850-square-mile reserve is a "liquid time capsule." Inside its borders is a magnificent reef that is nearly untouched by time and climate change, among other natural wonders. Doubilet and his partner, Jennifer Hayes, used their years of experience to illuminate a place that few people have ever seen.
