A mente que se abre a uma nova idéia jamais voltará ao seu tamanho original.

The mind that opens to a new idea never returns to its original size.

Albert Einstein

Quando vamos até o fundo do mar, descobrimos que ali jamais poderíamos viver sozinhos.
Então levamos mais alguém.E esta pessoa, chamada de dupla, companheiro ou simplesmente amigo, passa a ser importante para nós.Porque, além de poder salvar nossa vida, passa a compartilhar tudo que vimos e sentimos.E em duplas, passamos a ter equipes, e estas passam a ser cada vez maiores e mais unidas.

E assim entendemos que somos todos velhos amigos mesmo que não nos conheçamos.E esse elo que nos une é maior que todos os outros que já encontramos.E isso faz com que nós mais do que amigos, sejamos irmãos.Faz de nós, mergulhadores.

( Jacques Yves Cousteau)

Art & Soul: Underwater photographer explores the beauty of the deep at Jepson Center

Special to Savannah Morning News Greg McFall's photography explores Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary.
Underwater photographer Greg McFall describes Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary as “never the same place twice.”“Live From Gray’s Reef: Underwater Photographs by Greg McFall,” a solo exhibit currently on display at the Jepson Center for the Arts, celebrates exotic undersea creatures just off the Georgia coast. Presented in conjunction with the 10th annual Gray’s Reef Ocean Film Festival, the exhibition celebrates the diversity of sea life at Georgia’s only national marine sanctuary.
McFall, who serves as the deputy sanctuary superintendent and research coordinator for Gray’s Reef, offers colorful glimpses of a world rich with life, motion and drama. From the intricate yellow and blue patterning of a sea slug to the feathery texture of white sea anemones, this experienced diver and photographer shares the magic of this complex aquatic environment.
“What I love most about underwater photography is capturing images of what I see and bringing them back to the surface for others to enjoy,” he said. “If bringing the beauty of nature to people who may never have the opportunity to see it first-hand is what it take to help forge a connection to our offshore resources, then I am honored to oblige.”
Located just 16 miles east of Sapelo Island, Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary is one of 14 protected U.S. marine areas comprising the National Marine Sanctuary System. The underwater ecosystem spans 22 square miles and is defined by a live bottom reef studded with sea stars, soft coral, sponges and other life forms.
Although McFall has a background in marine biology, some of the strongest photographs on display reveal an artist’s eye for composition. He captures a school of silver fish gingerly framing a tentacled jellyfish in “Precarious Existence” and documents thick veils of orange coral rising from the rocky bottom of the ocean floor in “Soft Coral Curtain.”
“The biggest challenges of capturing underwater images at Gray’s Reef are the underwater visibility and the currents,” he explained. “When the currents are strong, particulate matter and fine sediment gets suspended in the water and is recorded as white spots all over the image. Additionally, the current itself tends to make it very difficult to stay in one place and focus on the subject of interest.”
This award-winning underwater photographer overcame the elements to shoot clouds of striped spadefish and to snap a pair of stern-faced black sea bass traversing the reef like grumpy grandparents. “Cannonball Jelly,” an image of a lone jellyfish floating through a black sea, is so otherworldly it seems as though it could have been shot in outer space.
McFall served as a photographer in the Navy at the age of 18 and completed the requisite training to become a Navy Diver. He was subsequently assigned to a specialized Underwater Photo Team in Little Creek, Va., where he developed his interest in underwater photography.
“My hope is that the photos in this exhibit will connect people with a beauty they had not known existed in the waters off of coastal Georgia,” he said, “and move them to help conserve and further educate others about the inherent value of these special places.”
Originally from Little Rock, Ark., Greg McFall serves as deputy sanctuary superintendent and research coordinator for Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary, where he coordinates scientific investigations into the ecology of hard-bottom reefs. He has a M.S. in Marine Biology from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where he studied the ecology of tropical sponges, and a B.S. in Biology from West Virginia University.
