BCM ‘Faces of the Deep’ exhibition from October 1-30 documents the aquatic adventures of John and Martha Lange

“Take pictures and leave only bubbles,” is a motto that underwater photographers John and Martha Lange live by. Through their love of scuba diving, some 1,000 logged dives each, they have learned to appreciate the underwater world, showing great respect to protect and preserve its natural beauty, while capturing the phenomenal beauty of its inhabitants for all to see.

An expansive collection of submerged snapshots by the diving duo, Faces of the Deep, will be on display at the Behringer-Crawford Museum from October 1 through October 30, 2022. In partnership with FotoFocus, the exhibit offers insight into worlds often overlooked by locals from the surface, from Borneo to Bonaire and many places in between. Featuring dozens of digital prints, the exhibit records a wide range of marine life, including banded butterflyfish, spotted scorpionfish, banded coral shrimp, green sea turtles and more.

Married for over 52 years, John and Martha Lange first discovered the underwater world in 2004 on a trip to Maui, Hawaii, where they took their first scuba diving lesson. After earning their certification in 2006 and experiencing the beauty and diversity of the Bonaire Marine Park, they vowed to return every year, and they did. “Every dive is a new and exciting adventure,” says John Lange. “And each photograph is our favorite because each brings back a special memory of our travels.”
