Action Asia - - CONTRIBUTORS - Text & photography: Eyes on the prize

An en­vi­ron­men­tal sci­en­tist and un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­pher from Vi­enna, Thomas is cur­rently work­ing on two long-term photo pro­jects. One is about the seascape of West Pa­pua, in the epi­cen­tre of ma­rine bio­di­ver­sity; the other a mul­ti­me­dia project about the ur­ban wildlife of his home­town – ‘Wiener Wild­nis’ (Vi­en­nese Wilder­ness). Of this is­sue’s story, he says, "Sev­eral times I was caught be­tween whale sharks and the an­chovies, which they went af­ter. Many pic­tures, which I had al­ready com­posed in my brain, could not be re­alised be­cause I was con­stantly pushed away by the whale sharks." See more of his work at www.
