Jim Hellemn - Marine Animals Collection

Documenting coral reefs becomes a process of documenting marine animals as well.  Not only can one not avoid including animals in almost every photograph, but I gain a strong sense of the community of animals that make up the reef, much like we have our communities of people on land that define a small town.  If I dive a site fifty or a hundred times, some surprising discoveries happen.  First, after a few dives to a new place I become familiar with where fish and animals are hanging out.  Then I notice that they aren’t running away from me - in fact, some of them want to hang out with me.
