Magnesium Flash Powder Explosion

Photograph by Charles Martin

A blast of highly explosive magnesium flash powder allowed photographers Longley and Martin to photograph underwater life for the first time. When the men wanted to take a photograph, they clicked the camera’s shutter, which tripped a battery on a raft they dragged behind them. The battery, in turn, triggered the magnesium powder explosion, which illuminated the sea down to 15 feet (4.6 meters).

Pre-Columbian Jar

Photograph by Luis Marden

Prolific underwater photographer Luis Marden was heralded for his photos of fish, coral reefs, and archaeological finds, such as this 1,000-year-old pre-Columbian jar being retrieved from the bottom of a Yucatán cenote in Dzibilchaltún, Mexico. Marden’s strength lay in color photography, however, and it wasn’t until he met and collaborated with ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau that his underwater artistry took off.

Legendary French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau examines a school of fish swimming past coral in the Indian Ocean. Together, Cousteau and photographer Marden pioneered the field of ocean exploration and photography. In 1956, Marden accompanied the legendary ocean explorer on a voyage from Toulon, France, to the Suez Canal aboard Cousteau's ship, Calypso. By journey’s end, Marden had 1,200 photographs, the largest collection of underwater color photographs ever taken.

Polar Bear in Hudson Bay, Canada

Photograph by Flip Nicklin

Underwater photographer Charles "Flip" Nicklin created a name for himself photographing whales—humpbacks, killer, and sperm—but recent climate trends brought the photographer to the Arctic to draw attention to the plight of polar bears that are losing their homes to warming temperatures, such as this one swimming among ice floes near Hudson Bay, Canada.
