Acclaimed underwater photographer Keith Ellenbogen brings the rich and surprising biodiversity of marine life off the Massachusetts coast—including great white sharks, humpback whales, sea turtles, and North Atlantic right whales—up close for visitors to see in his new outdoor photography exhibition, “Space to Sea: A Photographic Journey into Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary,” opening June 22 on the New England Aquarium’s Central Wharf.

To mark the sanctuary’s 30th anniversary, 50 of Ellenbogen’s large-scale photographs will wrap the Aquarium’s Simons Theatre and exterior of the Aquarium’s main building alongside the Harborwalk. “Space to Sea” showcases high-resolution images created with traditional cameras and some of the latest technology at MIT. Intimate portraits of underwater marine life offer an unusual glimpse into our local waters, home to more than 600 documented species that live in the federally-protected National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, located 25 miles off the coast of Boston between Cape Ann and Cape Cod and the surrounding area. Species include seals, sharks, sea turtles, whales, lobsters, ocean plankton, migratory seabirds, and numerous species of fish, such as Atlantic cod, striped bass, and herring. This vast underwater habitat contributes greatly to the state’s commercial and recreational economy and the overall health of Massachusetts’ coastal waters. The New England Aquarium has been a long-term education partner with Stellwagen Bank and operates whale watch excursions to the sanctuary from April to November in partnership with Boston Harbor City Cruises.
