An Evening Reception with Jean-Michel Cousteau and his Ocean Futures Society Team

Jean-Michel Cousteau and his Chief Expedition Photographer, Carrie Vonderhaar will showcase “Ocean Adventures” in a special evening artists’ reception at Island Brewery in Carpinteria, CA at 5:00pm on May 3, 2018. The art exhibit will also include additional photographs from Ocean Futures Society’s team members including Dr. Richard Murphy and Holly Lohuis, both marine biologists with Jean-Michel Cousteau’s team.

Traveling to extreme locations around the globe to reveal the mysteries of the ocean and its connection to our human world, Jean-Michel Cousteau and his team of explorers and photographers are excited to showcase their award winning photographs in a special ‘Ocean Adventures’ exhibit at Island Brewery in Carpinteria, CA starting on April 30, 2018.
While on assignment with Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society, the photographers lived in remote villages in the Amazon, assisted in the rescue of a stranded orca in New Zealand, and traveled in everything from helicopters and floatplanes to dug out canoes to get the shot and to document the story. They have spent months at a time in the field, and have explored and photographed extremely different environments, from 17,000 feet in the Andes photographing melting glaciers, to over 100 feet under water photographing reef sharks in Fiji and French Polynesia.

Explorer. Environmentalist. Educator. Film Producer. For more than six decades, Jean-Michel Cousteau has dedicated himself and his vast experience to communicate to people of all nations and generations his love and concern for our water planet. The son of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, Jean-Michel has investigated the world’s oceans for much of his life. Honoring his heritage, Jean-Michel founded Ocean Futures Society in 1999 to carry on this pioneering work.

Part of the proceeds from all sales will go to supporting the mission of Ocean Futures Society.
