TIFA 2021 Nature / Panoramic

Inside The Wave

  • Prize
    Gold in Nature/Panoramic
  • Photographer
    Alexej Sachov

Most of the wave photographs are taken above water from a shore. This series was taken on scuba dives, requiring a lot of safety precautions. The photos depict the similarity between the world above and underwater. When humans would start to see those similarities and love both worlds deeply and equally, there would be still a chance of preventing more environmental pollution and harm inflicted to animals and nature.
