DPG POTW Featured in New York Times
By Joseph Tepper, June 15, 2018 @ 01:04 PM (EST)

Former DPG Photographer of the Week and superb shooter Michaela Skovranova has been featured by The New York Times. In the article titled “An Underwater Photographer Documents a Meditative World,” The Times highlights and dissects the unique work of the Australia-based photographer.

“It’s easy to perceive instinctively the dreamlike sensation of being submerged,” writer Ania Bartkowiak explains of Skovranova’s imagery. “You can almost feel enveloped by cool water, and the movement in its expanse within the growing silence.”

It’s always great to see underwater photographers make the leap into the mainstream and such a highly regarded publication as The New York Times. However, we must point out that DPG had the beat on this story nearly two years ago. Of Michaela’s photos, DPG Editor Joe Tepper wrote the following:

“You won’t find much in the way of bright colors in Michaela Skovranova’s underwater photos. But while desaturated, her images are dripping with emotion, drama and a certain respect for the duality between beauty and raw power that exists in the ocean.”

We stand by our original description. DPG does not regret the error.
