Best of Show

Asian Diver (English) - - What Bubbled - BY: Wai Hoe Mok (Sin­ga­pore) – Wai Hoe Mok, win­ner of VOO 2018 Best of Show (Sharks)

“I have the priv­i­lege of swim­ming with and pho­tograph­ing sharks. What started off as cu­rios­ity and thrill-seek­ing, de­vel­oped into a pro­found re­spect for these an­i­mals. Sharks, un­for­tu­nately, carry with them a stigma that peo­ple do not find par­tic­u­larly lov­able. Cou­pled with an in­her­ent, al­beit il­log­i­cal fear for these mag­nif­i­cent crea­tures, we face an up­hill task to pro­tect them. In a small way, I hope that my pho­tographs can con­trib­ute to this change. Per­haps through the lens, I can show the beau­ti­ful and ma­jes­tic nature of sharks, and show that there is much that is worth pro­tect­ing.”
