Philippe Ramette’s ‘Rational Exploration Of The Undersea’ is a quirky set of photos depicting literal undersea exploration. Real explorers don’t use submarines or scuba suits. They survive with just their wits and ropes.
I never questioned the term ‘undersea exploration’ until I saw Philippe Ramette’s photos. While these photos are incredibly silly, they do make you think. Should there be a different term for undersea explorers? Separate but equal isn’t equal, but the law of the land doesn’t apply under the sea.
