HistoryMan has explored Earth’s Moon, most of the planets in Earth’s Solar system and some outer space but until Man could withstand water pressure at depths and still breathe the deep oceans were out of bounds. Recent published works by marine scientists and photographers have started to document the creatures of the deep. This work draws on my imagination to visualise a World down deep with little sunlight but much life.
