Does the current state of underwater photography and its relationship with social media create a perception bias? Lukas Müller from The Watermen Project argues that seeing all of these beautiful underwater photos in our social feeds filled with fish, sharks, whales and rays tricks us into thinking that the oceans are healthy and that marine life is plentiful. When, in reality, for every nice picture there are countless photos of dead reefs and empty space where marine life used to be plentiful. He stresses the responsibility of underwater photographers to engage their audiences by telling the story behind the photos and giving "a balanced and fair representation of what is happening in the seas right now, and what has happened over the decades."
