Frogfish portrait, Lembeh
Every so often, I come across images that leave me speechless. And while finding the words to describe these technically perfect, magnificent works of art should be easy, I feel words cannot add anything of value to this phenomenal collection of images. Sascha Janson’s extraordinary talent deserves a moment of our time, devoid of all distractions. I will say this though: Sascha’s imagery is without a doubt a prime example of what we all strive for when we sink through that magical portal—and underwater photographers will want to study these images meticulously.
Thankfully, the German-raised electrician found his true calling 13 years ago in the waters surrounding the Southeast Asian nation of Thailand. Janson extended a four-week holiday to complete a dive instructor course and never looked back. Since then, he has spent his time applying his love of technology and electronics to underwater photography and video. Currently based in Lembeh, Indonesia, Janson has access to some of the most bizarre life forms on our planet—and the proper skills to show the world their splendor.
