LOCATION: Papua New Guinea

STORY: “Step a few feet back and you see a flower. Look closely and the jacks (aka trevally) are swimming straight up at the camera, and hitting a glass ceiling, splitting into a phenomenal symmetrical pattern. According to my friends Dr. Schmale and Dr. Faber from RASMS, this behavior is most likely the fish trying to move into a layer of water that is warmer, less dense, different pH, or chemically different in some way. And I think it’s great how they see the beauty from a behavioral/scientific perspective, and we see equal beauty from purely aesthetic perspective. Combining both is one of the things I love the most in my career.” –Gug
