Paul Cangemi

Né en 1976 en France, Paul grandi loin de la mer mais passe tout ses été au bord de la méditerranée, profitant de la maison familiale. Initié dès l'âge de 5 ans à l'apnée par son père, il découvre la plongée sous marine à l'âge de douze ans ou il réalise ses premières photos sous marines à l'aide des premiers compacts étanches. Il entame alors des études de médecine pendant lesquelles il mettra entre parenthèse son amour pour la mer mais continuera à se passionner pour la photo. Ce n'est qu'en 2012 qu'il se décide à emporter avec lui son matériel photographique pour immortaliser ses rencontres sous marines. Autodidacte, il apprends de ses erreurs, lit beaucoup sur le sujet et ne plonge qu'à l'occasion de ses vacances s'inspirant techniquement des autres photographes sous marins. Son but est de sensibiliser le public à l'environnement marin, sa beauté et sa fragilité.

Born in 1976 in France, Paul Cangemi grew up far away from the sea but spent all his summer holidays at the family home on the Mediterranean coast. Introduced to apnea diving (free diving) by his father at the age of five, he discovered scuba diving at the age of twelve when he started taking his first underwater pictures with an early waterproof compact camera. Whilst studying medicine, he was forced to put his love for the sea on hold, but continued to be passionate about photography. It was not until 2012 that he decided to take his photographic equipment to capture his underwater encounters. Self-taught, he learns from his mistakes, reads a lot and dives during his vacation whilst trying to emulate the technical perfection of the great underwater photographers. His aim is to raise awareness of the marine environment, its beauty and fragility.
