Prince Hussain Aga Khan’s photograph exhibition “The Living Sea – Fragile Beauty” aims to inspire admiration and protection of sea life

Featuring almost a decade’s worth of photos, Prince Hussain’s exhibition The Living Sea – Fragile Beauty finally arrived in the UK. Entering the social hall of the Ismaili Centre, London on 7 September, visitors found themselves in a dazzling underwater world. The exhibition is on display at the Ismaili Centre, London until 24 September 2022.

Guests at the launch event included Princess Fareen, the Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea, the High Commissioner of Pakistan, senior members of the Exhibition Road Cultural Group, and leaders of the Jamat and AKDN. They encountered photographs of playful sea lions, basking iguanas and a determined cormorant, mixed with nudibranchs and clams on enormous backlit panels.

This long-awaited exhibition has previously been presented in New York, Nairobi, Lisbon, and Venice. It displays many years of wildlife photography from waters including mangrove swamps, coral reefs and deep seas; from Egypt to Ecuador and more. Some are close enough to sense their textures; others are situated in groups amidst their environment.

“The images around you this evening represent some of nature’s treasures and the most joyous moments of my life,” Prince Hussain said in his opening remarks. “Instants one couldn’t put into words if one tried.”
