Film director Claire Nouvian has worked alongside Census scientists studying the continental margins to capture some amazing photographs for her exhibition The Deep. The exhibit succeeds in relaying a great amount of information about life in the ocean depths, while capturing audiences’ imaginations with its powerful and striking imagery.
