Hope Spots

A Creative Pool project by Samantha Schwann (United States)

These images are selections from a three-year, ongoing photographic project documenting areas of significant oceanic importance that their protection has a measurable effect on global ocean health, known as Hope Spots. I have logged over 8,000 dives in many marine environments, witnessing the effects of plastic, pollution, overfishing, and climate change.
