If you’re visiting Bali over the next month or so, you might want to drop in to see the latest exhibition by the talented freediving photographer Pepe Arcos. Running from September 28 till October 26, “Corals of Asahan” promises to show corals “as they have never been shown before.” The name of the exhibition comes from the South Lombok location where the images were taken: Gili Asahan. And, of course, everything was shot on breathhold.
The limited edition prints are on display at the new Holiday Canggu Art Gallery, in Canggu, a resort village on the south coast, near Seminyak, and 30 percent of the profits go to South Lombok’s Coral Conservation project.
