FROM THE EDITOR
In so many ways, the ocean has become an inspiring medium for the artists, performers and dreamers of our world. And no wonder – it has been scientifically proven that our brains enter a state of relaxation when near the ocean. But what happens when we dive into it?
The creatures that greet us – fantastical in their own ways – dare us to enter a reality that greatly differs from our own. If you take a moment, you’ll find yourself peering through a different lens: the fluke of a dugong becomes an alluring mermaid tail; an unassuming fish turns into an abstract painting.
The photographers, artists and writers featured here have all found inspiration in the ocean. Through their eyes, my perception of the ocean and its inhabitants has been challenged and widened. What we see is largely shaped by what we think, and sometimes, all we need is a trip to the ocean and the courage to dream.
