    Akira Nanjo

Manta rays that are predating inflate their entire body and inhale. It was as if an opera singer was roaring his voice into every corner of the theater. I want to continue to protect them, which symbolize the rich sea.

My name is Akira Nanjo. I am an underwater photographer who lives in Okinawa Japan. The environment of Okinawa fascinates me, one so blessed by both sea and nature that it demands to be shared with the world.In 2021, I started working as a freelance underwater photographer to seek more encounters in the world's oceans. I want to tell more people about the beauty of the underwater world and the joy of photography.
