In Photos | Meet the Ocean’s Wild Denizens

When a photographer dives into oceans, the deepest secrets of elusive marine life come drifting.

Deep in the belly of the ocean exists a world of sudden movements and colours you may or may not recognise on land. The mystery of the water takes on a richer tint for a wildlife photographer with a love for the lesser known—gentle sirenians, marine invertebrates, mother-and-cub whales and all. Diving, snorkelling and even coaxing holes into oceans frozen white, Dhritiman Mukherjee delves underwater to resurface with stories of elusive aquatic encounters.

  • Dhritiman Mukherjee is as elusive as the animals he photographs. His photographs have appeared in National Geographic Traveller, The New York Times, Lonely Planet, WWF, UNESCO, Birdlife. He is a RBS Earth Hero award winner for inspiring people for conservation.
