“Marine Megatropolis 1974-1981,” featuring photos by Bob Evans, will be on display at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum in California November 16, 2017 through April 2018.
The exhibit includes 26 images selected from expeditions by Bob Evans and Andrew J. McMullen of La Mer Bleu Productions in Santa Barbara. Bob and Andy photo-documented the marine life as it developed beneath the offshore oil platforms of the Santa Barbara Channel between 1974 and 1981.
Evans told us that the legendary scientist and explorer Willard Bascom introduced him to Sea Technology magazine in the 1970s and that one of Evans’s images of offshore oil platforms was used as a cover shot for ST.
