Description:

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.

I have been dabbling with amateur underwater photography myself, so this gallery was a treat! Great photos. But the gallery might not be for everyone. I noticed a number of people who came in just for 2-3 mins and left. It's great for underwater enthusiasts, and photography enthusiasts, though. Hubby wanted to purchase a book of a collection of photos... More

It is unfortunate that as a photographer you would rate us as a 5 but you decided that for people who are not photographers my work and gallery is only worthy of a 3. Interestingly my work and gallery is actually a huge favourite of not just people that take all kinds of photography but also of people that simply... More

I am a diver and a conservationist and am very worried about the effects of climate change and ocean acidification on the coral reefs of the world.

Hi Andy Thanks so much for the review! The state of the oceans is a conversation I have nearly every day with people. A lot of people are concerned so I am hoping the groundswell to protect our oceans will keep building. So glad you enjoyed my work. Regards Glen More

I couldn't believe my eyes when I got into this place (which is for free). Basically you feel yourself underwater staring and those beautiful canvas-printed photographies from all around Aussie coasts, Micronesia, Red Sea and more and more. Must visit when in Fremantle.

Glen gives a view of another world, one that cannot even be seen with the naked eye below water. His work is striking and impressive. He is obviously a very talented fellow who spends time and effort to get it right.
