An incredible exhibition of documentary photographs shows the reality of life at sea


The National Maritime Museum has announced its exhibition “Exposure: Lives at Sea”, which will feature incredible documentary photographs exploring life at sea today. Opened on November 20, 2020, this exhibition will focus on “isolation and camaraderie, science and survival, climate change and conservation – the lived experience of men and women at sea”.

Showcasing the work of six sailors and researchers, this documentary photograph was designed to show large-scale panoramic works against smaller, more intimate rooms. With locations ranging from the reefs of Mexico to the desolate landscapes of Antarctica, the “Exposure: Lives at Sea” exhibit will showcase the different ways people interact with the sea.

The six photographers featured in the exhibition are Corey Arnold, Peter Iain Campbell, Michał Krzysztofowicz, Popescu Cezar Gabriel, Jennifer Adler and Octavio Aburto. Corey Arnold is a commercial fisherman and photographer working in the Alaskan seas. His work highlights how the camaraderie of the crew on board helps alleviate the hardships of such an extreme environment.

Meanwhile, conservation photographer and underwater journalist Jennifer Adler focuses her images on the feats researchers have done as they navigate the underwater realms to assess the health of our oceans and determine how we can protect them in the ocean. better.

Octabio Aburto is also interested in conservation, using his documentary photography to ask how we can balance ecotourism and development. By tracing the health of the reef in Mexico through his images of healthy, diverse and abundant marine life, he aims to use science to influence conservation in the region.

The exhibition ‘Exposure: Lives at Sea’ will open on November 20, 2020 in a socially distanced and visually directed exhibit. Entrance is free and you can see more information on the Royal Maritime Museum website. In the meantime, check out some of the images from the next exhibition below.
