The wonder of undersea marine life is revealed in all its fascinating glory by the photography of Robert Delfs.

His up close and personal photographs of some of the tiny inhabitants of Southeast Asia’s underwater reefs highlight the fragility of this environment, and are integral to his work in biodiversity protection and sustainable fishery development. A former writer for leading Asian publications, Robert’s journalistic dedication to detail is evident throughout his portfolio. He’s been taking underwater photographs for more than 15 years and they’ve been widely exhibited throughout Asia. To see more of his work, visit: thesevenseas.net
