Mark Hayek, CEO of Blancpain and one of the contestants, talks about ocean photography and this year’s event:
As an underwater diver and photographer, I appreciate the passion, skill, and commitment of the photographers in this area to take stunning ocean photographs. The finalists of the second annual Ocean Photography Competition show these three elements well in their photos. This year’s images show the ocean as it is, or at least as it should be, a place full of life, color, and wonder. These images also remind us of the injustices we inflict on the ocean and its inhabitants.
