WHAT IS ELASMODIVER?

Not just a huge collection of Shark Pictures: Elasmodiver.com contains images of sharks, skates, rays, and a few chimaera's from around the world. Elasmodiver began as a simple web based shark field guide to help divers find the best places to encounter the different species of sharks and rays that live in shallow water but it has slowly evolved into a much larger project containing information on all aspects of shark diving and shark photography.

There are now more than 10,000 shark pictures  and sections on shark evolution, biology, and conservation. There is a large library of reviewed shark books, a constantly updated shark taxonomy page, a monster list of shark links, and deeper in the site there are numerous articles and stories about shark encounters. Elasmodiver is now so difficult to check for updates, that new information and pictures are listed on an Elasmodiver Updates Page that can be accessed here:

SHARKS IN A FADING LIGHT

An exhibition of images by Andy Murch

 

The Sharks in a Fading Light / Predators in Peril Exhibition focuses on the publicís changing perception of sharks and their uncertain future in an increasingly hostile ocean.

 

An exhibition in two parts:

 

Sharks in a Fading Light

The first series of images portray sharks as iconic predators; powerful, daunting and majestic. The setting sun comments on the end of an era as the hysteria that surrounded sharks in the late 20th century is slowly replaced by respect and appreciation.

 

 

 

Predators in Peril

The second series of images focuses on the innate beauty and grace of sharks and explores their extraordinary diversity. This collection also includes images that draw attention to the vulnerability of sharks and the fragile position of many species due to over-fishing and habitat destruction.
