JAMES MONNINGTON: BLACK & WHITE

James is a marine ecologist and underwater photographer based in London, UK. All of his photos are taken while freediving, which is the principal focus of his work. The inherent constraints associated with breath-hold diving have a profound influence on his approach, forcing equipment minimalism and the need to shoot with available light. He is currently finishing a PhD research project investigating potential synergies between offshore renewable energy installations and marine conservation objectives.  Scroll down and vote for your pick of the portfolio and win a subscription to DIVE.
