Lisa Tubach

Lisa Tubach’s work features images of the natural world, specifically the aquatic biome. To gain authentic, visual access to the world’s oceans, Tubach collaborates with marine scientists on various projects—such as volunteer work with shark conservationists in Belize or coral reef documentation in the Bahamas and Australia. During these research trips, she captures video footage using her GoPro camera, waterproof notepad, and snorkel gear. “Thinking about my compositions as stage sets, with various entities playing a role, I’m bringing creatures and environments together that may not normally exist in the same space. A large part of this intention is the desire to emphasize the necessity of each ecosystem to the other—we need the ‘voices’ of each to be recognized and conserved,” she says.
