Eerie Beauties of the Deep: The Photographer

When periodicals need underwater shots, a go-to is Joshua Lambus, whose photos have appeared via National Geographic and The Telegraph. Today we continue our exploration of deep sea life with a profile of the photographer.

On his blog and on flickr, Lambus writes:

We are about 2 miles off the coast of the most remote land mass in the world (Kona Hawaii)… the water under us is between 2000 and 7000 ft deep… These animals live on the bottom by day in complete darkness only to travel to the surface every night… this is the largest known migration of any group of animals on the planet… and it happens nightly. Many of these creatures… are no larger than a postage stamp.

You can see more of Lambus’s photos on his website.
