Living Clouds

I subscribe to LensWork Magazine, and in the most recent issue, the photographs by Wayne Levin caught my eye. Levin does underwater photography, mostly of sea life: sharks, whales, fish, sunken ships, etc. and occasionally even synchronized swimmers.

I, like many people, have a bad habit of flipping through magazines backwards. So not knowing what I was looking at, the photographs seemed to be something out of a horror flick: monster tornadoes, or intelligent dark clouds filled with small creatures, just as dangerous but at the same time more mysterious than a flock of Alfred Hitchcock’s birds. At closer examination, of course, I realized they were just fish.

My stupidity and imagination aside, these photographs in the photographer’s, Fish Schools collection, are the impressive kind of creepy.

Of course these are just a few of the photographs, so to see more of Wayne Levin‘s photography go to
