Alexander Semenov is a Russian Marine Biologist who photographs some of the most beautiful jellyfish whom have an alien like appearance. Alexander is a leader in a scientist team who travel around the world exploring the creatures of the deep sea.
At 300 feet beneath the surface, the ocean is dark. There are no landmarks around, you are suspended,â€ writes Semenov. â€œLook hard enough and they appear: translucent creatures filled with colour. Some are as tiny as the nail on your finger, others are the size of a building. These are gelata â€“ unstudied, mysterious and omnipresent. They are the oceanâ€™s unseen backbone.
The team has an amazing job of exploring the ocean floors, nearly 80%Â of all the jellyfish population is still unknown to us. They are planning to coverÂ 30,000 miles and dive into three oceans in search of new jellyfish species to add new research in marine biology.
