Cancun's Subaquatic Sculpture Museum

Underwater Sculpture Museum

In 2009 the first steps of a monumental underwater museum were formed in the waters surrounding Cancun.  I was fortunate to be able to photograph the beginnings of this museum. Artist Jason deCaires Taylor, will eventually install on the sea floor over 400 permanent life-size sculptures, making one of the largest underwater artificial attractions in the world.

The first of 3 sculptures; La Jardinera de la Esperanza, Coleccionista de los Sueños and Hombre en Llamas, were placed in their permanent locations in November 2009.
Here are a few images from my time spent with Jason and his amazing works.
