Overview
More
Visit the gallery to view Glen Cowans' photography of marine images inspired by the waters of Western Australia and oceans around the world. His subjects are the seascapes within and the breathlessly beautiful life forms that live there. Cowans' images allow us to contemplate the wondrous life of the oceans. His lens is our microscope, exposing colour and species with a complexity and sculptural form not normally visible to the naked eye.

Glens underwater photographs are outstanding! They have such an amazing clarity. They are beautiful and artistic, and draw you in to the scene as though you are there -underwater, gliding alongside the extraordinary marine life.
