The exhibition of the best photographs submitted to this year's CIMASUB will be open from 1 to 30 November in the Nautilus room of the Aquarium San Sebastian.
The Donostia - San Sebastián International Underwater Film Series presents its photographic exhibition with 24 photographs received in the annual competition in its last edition. It will be held at different locations throughout Gipuzkoa throughout the year. We will keep you informed in our news section.
Our aim is to have the Exhibition of the best photographs open for as many days and in as many places as possible throughout the year. This exhibition will take us all over the world to the most spectacular underwater depths and will show us the most curious and eye-catching species.
Every year the number of photographs submitted to the competition grows, exceeding three hundred, from all corners of the planet. We have photographs from Argentina, Canada, Mexico, Belgium, France, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Italy, Germany, Ukraine, Serbia, etc. From all of these we exhibit the 24 best photographs submitted, highlighting of course the winners of the competition.
The channel of communication between the ambassadors of the sea, the underwater photographers, which every year flows through CIMASUB, making known the two faces of the same planet "ocean", the lights and shadows that form the whole in which we live, will reach in one way or another the expectant public, perhaps discoverer, for the first time, of the universe that vibrates and struggles to live on the other side of the mirror. And that, once again, its clear message of help will reach the depths of our feelings. We are not doing something right and the works shown will be the silent cry of those who have no possibility of expressing themselves in our human language.
On the one hand, more and more, the denunciation of the crude reality of human clumsiness, which hurts and damages entire ecosystems, expels or exterminates biodiversity, makes it impossible or very difficult, together with the more than evident overexploitation of fishing resources, unsustainable by all accounts, prisoners of the blindness of bread for today and hunger for tomorrow, which threaten the future of generations to come.
And on the other, the optimistic and hopeful vision of light and colour, the incredible universe that is still possible to find in some places of the planet, still healthy for the development of wildlife. Many times, so small and tiny, that it remains hidden to most eyes, and others, majestic and incredibly beautiful, flying over the infinite blue, enamouring and captivating everyone who gets to contemplate its delicate beauty. Undoubtedly the best option, you know, we protect what we love, don't we?
