Angels of the Seas


Manta rays – noble majestic underwater creatures whose movement paradoxically resembles the flight of birds. Elegant dancers moving in the depths of indomitable oceans. Graceful curves intersecting one of the truly last wildernesses of the world. The world with which we are so interconnected and yet it is so remote from us and so unknown. And perhaps because of all these contrasts, fascinated by the robustness and fragility at the same time, I decided to expose this creature in a completely different environment, different perspective, in a completely different context. When walking beneath the angel wings, you can dream, unleash your imagination and get carried away to the ocean bottom or somewhere further away...
