    Silver in Nature / Underwater

Humans replace endangered species with a more advanced one — the plastic-made species are now ruling the underwater world. Environmental pollution is one of the most terrifying problems of the modern world. Almost on every dive in every location you can see pockets.

Alexej was born in Kharkiv, Ukraine. He obtained a diploma in rocket engineering and got photography education in the Kyiv School of Photography. In his artworks Alexej is trying to bring underwater photography to the new level - he investigates the water surface from the deep, uses allegories to show the underwater world like and the world above water or even like a cosmos. Alexej's education and philosophy of life define his style of photography: the photographs depict the beauty of the underwater world and the horrors of man-made ocean pollution.
