Metamorphosea – A 24 Hour Sojourn on the Great Barrier Reef
On 16 July 1995 on the Great Barrier Reef’s ‘Temple of Doom’ bommie, five divers boldly went where none had gone before, embarking on an adventure that would push them to the limits. They would stay in liquid space longer than any other terrestrial being in history, using oxygen enriched air to submerge themselves for 24 hours.
Their aim; to unravel the mystery that is a reef, to show the jigsaw pieces fitted together by a camera lense with its ability to capture the beauty, movement, life and death that thrive in this chaos of complexity.
The 180 images that move from the silhouettes that sprout at dusk to the liquid blackness of night and the intensity of life in the blue spectrum as it is filled with light, create a bigger picture that can only offer a glimpse of the extraordinary closeness to the life on the reef felt by these photographers during their sojourn.
BONUS: The special photo documentary section reveals what it takes to be an underwater Indiana Jones amongst the relentless activity of the “Temple of Doom.’
