Look at All These Insane Deep-Sea Creatures Biologist Just Found In White Sea

Fantastic underwater photos by Alexander Semenov, a marine biologist and a professional underwater photographer. Also he is a head of the scientific divers team at the White Sea Biological Station of Lomonosov’s Moscow State University, Russia. The station was founded in 1938 and mostly it was built by enthusiasts who came here because of the amazing atmosphere that had being developed over many years at the station. This is an unusual and unique mix of students energy, serious science and the harsh northern nature.

“I’m marine biologist, specializing in invertebrate animals. Currently, I’m the Head of the Divers’ team at Moscow State University’s White Sea Biological Station where I organize and manage all sorts of underwater work. My team and I are used to diving in unfavourable and often harsh conditions, successfully conducting complex research projects. I’m a professional underwater photographer with 10+ years of experience. My key specialization is scientific macro photography in natural environments. This approach makes it possible to observe animals that cannot be properly studied under laboratory conditions, such as soft-bodied planktonic organisms or stationary life forms living on the seafloor. My personal goal is to study underwater life through camera lenses and to boost people’s interest in marine biology. I do this by sharing all my findings through social media and in real life through public lectures, movies, exhibitions and media events.

I have the unique opportunity to observe beauty in the underwater darkness, which led me to multiple collaborations, namely with National Geographic, BBC, Nature Magazine, Science Magazine, the Smithsonian Institution and much more, with people from the scientific community all around the world.

I love what I do and I love the Sea.”
