Meet Alex Dawson, a Swedish Photographer obsessed with the underwater world. Alex’s deep dives document epic moments between coral reefs and his passion for extreme undersea explorations since the ’90s. His Nikon lenses capture decades-old annihilated marine ships to wrecked planes, some as far back as world wars.
The Red Sea has swept the diver’s interest, and he’s been revisiting points across Egypt like Abu Nuhas and Jordan, specifically the Gulf of Aqaba. He’s attracted to destinations with open landscapes, historical spots, and coral shorelines, which all reflect his raw shooting style. Since running into marine species has also become second nature, Dawson often shares his courageous head on interactions with sharks, whales, wild orcas, dolphins, and more, giving viewers an up-close organic interaction.
The Stockholm-based photographer has won many local and international awards; he even represented Sweden in the Underwater Photography World Championship. Dawson was also featured as a proud first place winner for the wide angled capture of his Jordanian Royal Ecological Society that sank in 1999.
