    Bronze in Nature / Underwater

I shot humpback calf in Tonga vava'u, when he came up to breathe, his eyes seemed to ask who am I? Calf, the adorable humpback whale, is curious about everything.

I am Zola Chen, a photographer specializing in marine ecosystems. I previously worked as a multimedia designer. I learned diving and free-diving in 2010. Since then, I have been going underwater with my camera to capture wonderful ecosystems beneath the sea surface and also the diversified culture and customs on land. I have been continuously recording images of marine ecosystems whereever I go.
