The Regno di Nettuno is an 11.000-hectare marine reserve in the Gulf of Naples. The closed water surface gives no hint that beneath it is the Cuma Gorge, which is up to 1000 metres deep. The submarine canyon system is a habitat for large marine mammals whose populations are constantly being researched. The most important method is monitoring the marine animals with cameras and hydrophones. Being a research volunteer on a research ship I spent days trying to see dolphins or whales. In the moving and closed sea surface, the sea dwellers are very difficult to see. The non-visibility of the gigantic underwater space was impressive. So was the visual search that lasted for days. After my photographic work on the industrialised farming at night, to me the space of the deep sea is a very special landscape space in daylight.
