Deep Space LIVE
Thursday, May 3, 2012 / 8 PM / Ars Electronica Center
(Linz, April 27, 2012) Scuba diver and underwater photographer Peter Pflügl invites you to take a journey through a spectacularly beautiful submarine world on Thursday, May 3. Visitors will encounter extraordinary sea creatures and learn some interesting things about how they live and behave. In addition to presenting fascinating underwater photography, Pflügl will give some insights into how he works, his photographic techniques and the equipment necessary.
The Linz nature photographer, adventurer, author and multiple gold medalist in major photography contests has been exploring the world’s oceans for more than 30 years and has more than 5,000 dives to his credit. Superb underwater photographs aren’t a matter of chance for Pflügl: “A prerequisite is that the human intruder respects the laws prevailing in this domain.”
