Gilbert van Ryckevorsel – Underwater Photography
Topics: Mushamush River – snorkeling
Visual evidence of Natural Waters
Aquatic flora and fauna
Special Effects Fantasy – Abstraction
Gilbert moved to Canada in 1967 worked as a master brewer in Montreal and Quebec and end up working in Halifax, with photography only a hobby. In Halifax he worked with a company that worked with mirrors, glass work then became interested in the St. Margarets Bay area and especially the bluefin tuna. He started working with a diver who also took underwater photos. Then started working around the salmon rivers in the local areas.  He now makes his home in Mahone Bay where he still takes underwater photo around the area.  Fallen trees in the rivers make underwater art work in the river bottoms. He does not use a flash and only goes out on nice sunny days. He takes underwater photos of old roots/weeds/grass/fish/etc. The colors look so different from what we would normally see.
