Franco and Sabrina collaborate as a photojournalist team. They both started as recreational scuba divers, then specialized in technical diving and recently in free diving. They live the liquid element with passion and dedication and are focused on sharing both the majestic beauty of the underwater planet and also highlighting environmental problems. “Photography can be a powerful instrument for documenting and changing the minds of people who are not yet aware of the troubles faced by our ecosystems.”
