Jason de Caires spent his childhood on the coast of Malaysia. That’s where his relationship with the sea started. He spent many years as an underwater teacher. His job has also enabled him to photograph and study the recuperation of coral reefs in no superficial way. Moved by his love of art, he left the depths of the sea and went to London to study. That’s where he discovered sculpture and ceramics. He spent five years working on the restoration of Canterbury Cathedral. But then he heard the sirens again and left Europe for the Caribbean. And in the Caribbean he started his life project, which you can see in these photographs: building an underwater reef park. Combining art and coral reefs, Jason de Caires has built many striking underwater sculpture installations near islands in the Caribbean and off Mexico.
