Sculptures were already dismantled in the Crimean cities and towns, so it was kind of a recycling project. Borumenski planned to complete the Soviet museum, with sculptures of Mao Zedong, Mussolini and Napoleon, but didn’t follow through. Here: Pink Gagarin. Continue reading »

UK Underwater Photographer of the Year 2016 Winners

Behaviour category runner-up. What Feed Beneath by Alejandro Prieto (Mexico). “I entered the cold November water to photograph a pair of humpback whales … swimming back to the boat I saw a small moving object in front of me; it was a Hawaiian petrel submerging its head to feed on the tiny crustaceans. Under normal circumstances as you get close it will fly away, but surprisingly instead of this it just kept feeding in front of me. By approaching very slowly I was able to get close from beneath, thankfully it stayed there for a few moments allowing me to capture this behaviour”.
