The Dark Matter collection by Russian photographer Alexander Semenov represents the latest of the artist's phosphorescent underwater portfolio. Known for his ability to showcase the beauty of intricate sea creatures, Semenov has time and time again delivered hyper-detailed exhibits, often displaying thin strands of hair and every vertebrae imaginable.

The photos are magnificent. This stream of natural imagery has allowed the public to visualize the lives of crustaceans, mostly out of site as they burrow beneath the seafloor. Semenov’s team has collected a series of seldom seen specimens, capturing the sinewy contours of practically anonymous animals. The merger of ecology with beauty here is phenomenal, and the phosphorescent glow of the underwater inhabitants adds to the project’s glamor.
