The Earth’s Most Fragile Marine Wildlife Near the Arctic Circle

Marine photographer Alexander Semenov has lead the divers team at Moscow State University’s White Sea Biological Station located just south of the Artic Circle.

Semenov directs scientific dives in extremely cold and harsh conditions to document sea creatures seldom seen anywhere else on Earth. From giant jellyfish to the tiniest of unknown sea worms, the photographer captures almost all of the creatures you see here out in the wild, without the convenience of a laboratory or studio.
