Other Worldly Marine Photography
Janeanne Gilchrist is a freediver and photographer from Scotland who has attracted international attention for her work which captures objects in the sea and mirrors the images to capture that otherworldliness that exists beneath the surface.
These images have been captured around the coast of Scotland.
Free diving off the unpredictable coasts of Scotland, one breath at a time, Janeanne forages for objects in the depths – a tangle of fishing net, a singed seaman’s sou’wester, discarded fish gut, a decomposing plastic bag – the thoughtlessly discarded cast-offs of fishermen and of man. She also searches out natural subjects – the spawning seaweed, the mesmerizing alien glow of a jellyfish, the stone washed bones of a migratory bird.
