After the successful opening of his film THE WORLD UNSEEN in USA and Canada, Parvin Dabas treated himself to what he's most passionate about Photography. He traveled to Egypt for an Underwater Photography workshop with 26 experienced divers and clicked the most amazing underwater pictures. While capturing the incredible marine life and loving every minute of it, the only time grief gripped him was when he realized that this beautiful marine life is on the verge of extinction.
''As a photographer, you tend to look at the surface and capture the most visible beauty. However, in the process you may not realize the inner beauty of the object under appreciation. During my underwater stint, I was totally preoccupied with what I saw and was capturing on lens. It was amazing to be a part of the life which exists so deep down. However, I froze for a moment when realization struck that all of this may not exist in some years from now.''
That's when he continued non stop freezing them on his lens to show people the beautiful life that exists underwater wanting to inspire them through his photography to keep the environment clean.
''We are going miles up in the sky with 100200 stories buildings coming up. Great, I am all for it. However, miles below the sea, we are just not maintaining Earth's beauty any more. It seems that we have become completely selfish and are only interested in building walls around us while completely ignoring the free world that lies beneath.''
He pauses for a while before reasoning, ''I just hope that I am able to aid in some safeguard of this beautiful world through my photographs. May be that would enable people to wake up to this charming world that is just unexplored!''
