The Ocean’s Depths - Photography in the duty of science

The National Geographic Society

For fifteen years Laurent Ballesta (biologist) and Pierre Descamp (photographer), traveled to paradise destinations like Polynesia or the Arctic sea to explore the depths of the oceans.

The Photo exhibition in Hamburg charts their amazing achievements, and serves to remind us to take care of our precious under water world!

The National Geographic Society

The National Geographic Society is the largest non-profit-making scientific organization in the world. It was founded in 1888 in Washington D.C. with the aim of ‘increasing and diffusing geographical knowledge’.

To date, the Society has provided financial support for more than 8000 expeditions and research projects. The National Geographic magazine informs the world about the results obtained by these, thus ensuring that great moments in the history of science become landmark points of record. In the middle of the 1990’s, National Geographic began to publish separate national editions for various countries.

Among such outstanding moments in the history of research and discovery on which National Geographic was the first to report were Peary’s march to the North Pole, the discovery of the Inca city of Machu Pichu, and the sensational finding of the wreck of the “Titanic”.

GOSU - Jason Strachan

goshu

Gosu is the beautiful photoblog of Jason Strachan. The Cape Town resident shoots the most amazing pictures, we have seen in a while. Lunaesque landscapes and unreal colors make this an unbelievably strong portfolio of work.

Apart from the casual beauty defined in each photo there is one picture we saw which will make you smile, Jason managed to capture Bill Gates at a concert getting ‘emotional’ listening to music… a must see for this picture alone for it is worth a thousand words indeed.

Jason shoots all his pictures with a Canon 350D, Canon 15mm fisheye, Tokina 12-24mm, Tamron 28-75mm and other assorted junk.

WHAT DOES GOSU MEAN?
Gosu is a Korean word that is used to refer to a person with skill in martial arts or baduk (an eastern board game)
