    Silver in Nature / Underwater

You would think, that these photos of alien ships were taken with the new James Webb Space Telescope - photos of a colony, a transporter, a researcher and a warrior. But it is not the case - the small nemo gives you a hint about the true location!

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.
