Review : :
For millennia, climatological and geological processes created the necessary conditions for the tropical Indo-Pacific to evolve into the most diverse area among marine ecosystems. The Indonesian-Philippines area is the epicentre of this amazing biodiversity. Award-winning photographer Constantinos Petrinos chose the Lembeh Strait in North Sulawesi, Indonesia to document this fascinating underwater wonderland. He spent 5 months in the region, did 320 dives and took 25,000 slides. "Realm of the Pygmy Seahorse" features 280 of these amazing photographs. Underwater photographers will find a wealth of information on technique. For the naturalist, the rich text explains the spectacular behaviour seen in the photos.
The author attempts to give the reader an insider's view on the daily lives of the animals in this complex ecosystem that features a variety of habitats. Seemingly barren volcanic sand slopes and rubble areas reveal elusive, rare creatures, such as the wonderpus and the mimic octopus. Tiny pygmy seahorses adorn "Muricella" sea fans. Spectacular nudibranchs are everywhere. The rare and unusual seem commonplace.
About the Author
Constantinos Petrinos is a professional Greek underwater photographer. He spent his early childhood in Cameroon, Africa and then moved with his family to Athens. While growing up, he aspired to become a marine biologist, but more practical considerations led him to business studies. He obtained a Master's in Business Administration from Dartmouth College in the USA. A while ago, he decided to free himself from business suits and suffocating ties and dive the world's oceans.
His photographs have won awards at many competitions, including the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year. His articles have appeared in various magazines, such as "BBC Wildlife," "Dive," "Oceans Illustrated" and the Greek editions of "National Geographic" and "National Geographic Traveller". He is the photographer on location for the Hellenic Institute of Marine Archaeology, which conducts underwater excavations in conjunction with the Greek Ministry of Culture. Throughout the year, Petinos conducts slide shows in Greek schools to promote marine awareness.
