PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR
Underwater Journey in a Frozen World
At the end of the austral summer, photographer Greg Lecoeur, free diver Guillaume Nery, and cameraman Florian Fisher boarded a small sailboat bound for the white continent. Their goal was to plunge into the icy waters of the planet's most hostile ecosystem and bear witness to its beauty and fragility.

WITNESS OF NATURE
Originally from Nice and a lover of the Mediterranean Sea since early childhood, Greg Lecoeur became interested in marine biology and diving at a very young age.
At 32, after studying business and a career as an entrepreneur, he sold his company and lived his dream: a year backpacking around the world with his camera. Upon his return, his insights and unique perspective were featured in French and international publications.
Since then, his photographs have received numerous international awards (National Geographic Photographer of the Year, 2016; Underwater Photographer of the Year, 2020).
Today, Lecoeur devotes all his time to his passion and life commitment: capturing the emotions of the living marine world in order to tell the ocean's stories and raise awareness about the preservation of underwater ecosystems.
