As you probably already know, here at Live Fast Mag, we are a little bit obsessed with the ocean. One of the most exciting exhibits we caught at Art Basel Miami this week centered around the whale shark, and the few daring ladies willing to dance beneath the sea with them.
Kristian Schmidt‘s ‘Whale Shark Series‘ – shown at at MAPS Backlot Studios – was meticulously shot underwater involving divers, local fishermen and a crew of helpers in the Philippines – is meant to help raise awareness for the extinction of whale sharks. Stay tuned for an interview with Kristian in the near future.
