Eleven years of work in the sea led to the photo exhibit “Pacific” by photographer and diving instructor David García.
The exhibit will be on Friday, February 1 in Playa Guiones, Nosara at cafe and brewery Olo Alaia. The event will combine art, craft beer and food from Mindfull bites. Entry is open to the public and will begin at 7 p.m.
In the photos you will be able to see silky sharks, sailfish, and a giant oceanic manta ray. The activity promises to submerge attendees in journey through the depths of the Pacific ocean in order to raise awareness about the importance of protecting marine ecosystems.
García says that the sightings of some of these species like the humpback whale are easier to predict because they visit the Pacific coast of Costa Rica during certain seasons, while seeing an killer whale or a thresher shark in these waters “is like winning the lottery.” But he has managed to do it several times and the proof is in the pictures.
The coolest thing about the sea is that it’s like a box of surprises,” the photographer says.
During the activity on Friday you will be able to appreciate the entire collection and talk to the photographer. Part of the exhibit will continue throughout the month of February in Ola Alaia.
The photos are on sale in different sizes and most of the money collected will be used to support different organizations that work for the marine life conservation, The Voice of Guanacaste among them.
