Feo Pitcairn’s photographic exhibit of ocean subjects embodies two distinct periods of his evolving career; his “Legacy” period during the decades of the seventies and eighties, and his return to still photography in the current digital age, subsequent to a successful twenty year career as an underwater film maker.
When you walk into the Sant Ocean Hall, you enter the world of water. You may feel as though you have taken a dive into the depths – largely due to the beautiful, choreographed ocean footage that surrounds the upper reaches of the Hall in high-tech video. The Ocean Odyssey film projected on the Hall’s high bay walls above you will transport you into the realm beneath the waves. Take a deep breath and enjoy it as you watch whales swim by, huge schools of fish swirl about, and light shimmer through prisms of water.
