Photographs by Sean Landsman at The Guild

(photo: Sean Landsman)Sean Landsman’s photography exhibit Beneath the Surface will be on the walls at The Guild, 111 Queen Street, Charlottetown, in September.

Beneath the Surface brings the underwater world of Atlantic Canada to visitors of The Guild. Sean Landsman’s photographic images in this collection showcase the diversity of fish life found in the region—from sharks and brook trout to sturgeon and lamprey. Sean’s artistic philosophy is to use captivating imagery to foster stewardship of our aquatic ecosystems, particularly freshwater environments. His aim, he explains, is to blend creativity and technical skill with photographs that tell a story, appealing to people’s desire to view beauty with their desire to learn new things about the world around them.

Underwater photography requires highly specialized equipment, a willingness to enter hostile environments, and extreme levels of patience and determination to capture that perfect shot.

Sean says that he is a firm believer that the discomfort required to make these images—including Stage 1 hypothermia, jellyfish stings, horse fly bites, and seasickness—is simply part of the process. And, in the end, he says, enduring these things to literally interact face-to-snout with blue sharks, watch eels probing the sandy estuary bottoms for crabs, and witness tender moments between spawning brook trout, is 100% worth the effort.

In addition to the two-week display of Sean’s photography, he will also deliver two public talks—one at the exhibit’s opening and another on the final day of the exhibition. All are welcome to attend and learn about aquatic life in the region and the process of underwater photography.

Sean doubles as a photographer and fisheries scientist with over a decade of experience researching fishes across North America. His images are widely published in regional, national, and international publications and have received awards in multiple competitions including the Underwater Photographer of the Year Competition and Canadian Geographic’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition.
