the whaleshark is a gentle giant of the sea. in a remote place in west papua indonesia, whalesharks gather around under fishing platforms called bagans and s**k the scraps of fish and plankton out of the nets. the fishermen believe the whalesharks bring good luck so they do not k**l them. this photo was captured in the mid morning after a week of clouds and rain as it was gliding effortlessly on the way back from the bagan.

whale sharks are completely harmless to humans as they are filter feeders feeding on plankton, krill, small fish and squid. unfortunately in other places around the world, their slow movements make them prime targets for poachers who slaughter them for their fins or they become the victim of boat traffic accidents.

hello my name is katherine lu and this week i will be posting on women photograph.
i am an american underwater photographer living in singapore and am interested in ocean conservation. many people have traveled the lands but fewer have seen the world below the ocean surface, yet the it covers 70% of the earths surface. through my images i am hoping to help raise awareness and education and bring a voice to the creatures both big and small that live in our oceans.

flower vase
a sea squirt may look more like a plant or coral, but it is an animal. sea squirts are more scientifically known as tunicates or ascidians. there are over 2000 different kinds and they are found throughout the world. i spotted this pink transparent sea squirt with a goby resting on it while on a dive in lembeh straits indonesia. i used a bit of side lighting to bring the intricate details of the sea squirt out. the end picture looked like a flower vase with the goby serving as the handle.

the pygmy seahorse is a master of camouflage and one of the smallest seahorses in the world measuring less than 2 cm from head to tail. being so small and poor swimmers to handle water currents they anchor themselves to their host gorgonian corals and adopt and blend in to the color of the coral in order to survive. image shot in indonesia.

this is a series of self-portrait about my personal experience as a mixed race person.

i carry in me two distinct universes, the white and the black, the world of the oppressor and the oppressed. through this project, i invite the viewers to witness this confrontation within the periphery of my body. i used my hair as the principal denominator.

Photo by @em.regnier, la bella de luanda is a series of events that lead me to rediscover how tasteful the universe can be. this work is probably more about me and my desire to envision the world. when i got to luanda, i felt “disillusioned” after three years in paris. a place where i forgot about colors. leaving europe, i was left feeling that the world was monochrome.
despite spending half my life on the african continent, i felt like everything in luanda was new to my eyes. i was seeing women carrying the entire universe over their heads, bananas, avocado, brooms, teddy bears, hair extensions, etc.… it will go beyond your wildest dreams. they are called the ´zungueiras´ (street sellers). i had a sudden impulse to photograph them in a way that i had never seen them being depicted before. i had no intention to create something glorious or gorgeous, i just wanted to portray them the way they appear to me, feeling the need to challenge more traditional narratives. i entirely cheat on documentary photography, manipulating the environment so it will fulfill my own vision and how i felt the pulse of the city.
