While sharing her world-renowned underwater photographs, photographer Lia Barrett discusses her role in making a seemingly scary, tempestuous and unknown realm relatable to a world of people who depend on these vital bodies of water for existence.
Lia Barrett is a Korean born, North Carolina raised professional underwater photographer. After completing university at Parsons School of Design in New York in 2007, Lia has been on a continual pursuit of travel and adventure. From her deep sea work in a homemade submarine off of Roatán, Honduras, to shooting world record holding free divers, Lia has embraced the underwater world as her ultimate sanctuary.
Lia is the Photo Editor of Dive Photo Guide, the definitive source for underwater photography. She is also the cofounder and Creative Director of Prawno Apparel, an ocean-minded apparel company that draws designs directly from Lia’s photographs. She has been published in numerous newspapers and magazines, including the front page of the New York Times, BBC, CNN, Time, Huffington Post, Playboy, Men’s Journal and 60 Minutes. She has sat on several underwater photography judging panels, and finds great pleasure in encouraging other photographers to grow and develop their craft.
