The Life Aquatic with Bruce Mozert

Thursday, 04 September 2008
Bruce Mozert and his Underwater Camera in the 1930's.Back in the 1930's, it was rather difficult to find a waterproof camera at your local electronic store. Of course there weren't too many tech blogs then to show you what was new on the market.

Bruce Mozert loved the idea of underwater photography and he was one of the first in America to do it. Gear was an issue so he had to build his own giant waterproof housing for the camera and flash and over the next 45 years, he worked on his technique and focused on recreating memorable scenes of everyday life.

Underwater Lawn CuttingTo make the photos even more unique, he used dry ice to make bubbles and condensed milk to create the illusion of smoke.
