A story is only half told until you sink beneath the surface.

Spending his early life on Mediterranean shores, Pepe Arcos always felt the lure of the ocean, a mysterious, underwater world witnessed by few and inhabited by fewer.

Creativity became his life as a successful graphic designer, an existence on terra firma that would consume the majority of a decade. But the Siren's song would always ring in his ears, the draw of that subcutaneous realm an unrelinquishing gravitational energy that must be answered.

Training in Freediving and bringing his significant photographic experience beneath the waves, Arcos explored this underwater domain, holding breath for minutes at a time to capture images of ethereal calm.

Arcos latest exhibition, 'Essence of Wildness', inspired by the words of Henry David Thoreau:

 

"We need the tonic of wildness... we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us... We can never have enough nature."

Taking us beneath the surface in the Philippines, Egypt, Tonga and Mexico, Arcos portrays his world in still and film imagery, fairy tale scenes that defy what we imagine humanly possible on a single breath.

Now a professional Freediver and underwater filmmaker and photographer, Pepe Arcos invites you to take a breath, dive deep, relinquish the familiarity of dry land and witness a world under the surface.
