Fascinated and intrigued with life below the ocean’s surface? Come and explore weird and wonderful marine species, long-forgotten shipwrecks, incredible underwater seascapes and baffling animal behaviour at the Underwater Photographer of the Year 2016 exhibition in Cape Town. Valid Wild Card members will enjoy an exclusive discount.
From 1 May to 30 September the Chavonnes Battery Museum (Clock Tower) at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town is hosting the Underwater Photographer of the Year 2016 exhibition. The exhibition, on show in South Africa for the first time, boasts 41 pictures across eight categories – a selection of the best of the best from 54 countries.
South Africa can be especially proud as our own Pier Mane’s picture, Three Pillars (below), won in the category Up & Coming Underwater Photographer. One of the judges, Martin Edge, said: “Throughout the judging process, this image grew and grew on me. It got better every time I viewed it.” And we can see why!
The exhibition and museum is open daily from 09:00 to 16:00.
