Yoshi Hirata is a Japanese photographer and marine biologist based in the Philippines. His father was an artist and a painter, so Hirata learned to see a lot of different angles of truths from him. He also studied nature where he also found a variety of truths in ecology, but at the same time, he said, his heart sought beauty.

“Every year, I come up with a concept of study and art as a project for myself. Luckily, I have never lost my passion and interest in nature. I have been diving for over 44 years, logging some 26,000 dives already, but still I dive every day. I have only one life to live, so I want to see more and more. And I want to explain and show people, more and more, how there is so much beauty in the underwater world.”
