The Full Story
Hi, I’m Caitlin Burnett and I am a wildlife photographer and filmmaker, I specialise in underwater photography and marine conservation.
I am currently exploring the concept of time underwater creating images with the use of motion blur presented in an abstract form. This will be displayed as a book along with my own illustrations and poems to show and share my passion for the ocean.
I am also creating a short film underwater to show the natural beauty that is held below our feet. This is a way for the world to see how beautiful the ocean is and to express that it is dying due to our mistakes. It’s not too late to solve these problems and I want others to recognise this before giving up on the planet, if we act now then marine species have a chance at to survive too.
See The World Through My Eyes
It’s taken for granted the world we live in, above and below are much alike but so very different.
But have you seen the world through my eyes, beneath the surface of the sea. As I exhale to descend and immerse myself into another world. Busy is the community and famished is the reef, much alike our world.
Bubbles, all i can hear is bubbles as I breathe and feel free and pieceful. So much beauty lies under the sea, bright and vibrant colours and movement with such elegance.
But, when you move in closer, amazed yet baffled by the somewhat alien beings. Corals magnified become a work of art, patterns and details so bold. Life of all shapes and sizes welcoming you to their world.
