In collaboration with Manuel Año, we explored the majestic Gaspé Peninsula, specifically Percé, to document scientific research being conducted by the Aquarium du Québec. This five-year project, based around Bonaventure Island, aims to assess the impact of recreational diving on biodiversity. Our team captured terrestrial, aquatic and aerial images, while Manuel, expert diver and cameraman, accompanied the divers to capture underwater footage.

En route to Percé, we stopped off at Matapédia, offering a bird’s-eye view of the eponymous river and showcasing Manuel’s talent.
