from the editor

After six long years, I am back in the Editor’s chair again, full circle to my saltwater magazine roots. Just like Rajan the Elephant (page 106), I feel like I’m lumbering back into the ocean where I belong, only to find it far more radiant than ever. Immediately, I’m in awe of the remarkable images that now grace these pages, from longtime contributors like William Tan and Jason Isley, to the new faces in the Voice of the Ocean 2019 competition (page 24).

adex 2019 voice of the ocean

1. BEST OF SHOW By :Lütfü Tanrıöver (Turkey) Title : The Mother When : June 2018 Where : İskenderun, İzmir, Turkey Equipment: Panasonic Lumix GH4, Olympus 12–50mm, Nauticam CMC-1, Saga +5, Century Optics +3.5 “I asked some friends who own dive centres around Turkey if they could find me octopuses with eggs that I could film. One mother octopus was found inside a little cave at about 24 metres, and I quickly realised what a huge challenge it would be to shoot it – the eggs were the size of sesame seeds. The cave had a very small opening and the octopus was deep inside, so it proved impossible to get close enough to focus using close-up lenses. On the first day, we noticed that some eggs were quite brown and the babies would…
