The Living Sea: Fragile Beauty is being hosted in Calgary by the Ismaili Council for Canada. The exhibition is on at Glenbow at The Edison from May 11 to 21.

Through the power of photography, this exhibition raises awareness of environmental causes and concerns in our oceans. Photos of diverse species and ecosystems highlight the impact of pollution on our waterways and the value and importance of preserving biodiversity.


From a young age, Prince Hussain Aga Khan developed a keen interest in conservation, tropical fish, reptiles and amphibians – and began scuba diving at 14. He started travelling to the tropics frequently after high school and began taking photographs of fauna and flora on a trip to the Brazilian Amazon in 1996.

Multiple photographic expeditions, often organized jointly with scientists or professional photographers, have led him to constitute extraordinary archives, covering various geographic areas and types of habitats. He has also captured many marine and terrestrial species.

His international exhibitions aim to inspire admiration for wildlife and the desire to protect it. Collections of Prince Hussain’s photographs have also been published in four books: Animal Voyage (2004), Diving into Wildlife (2015), Fragile Beauty (2022) and The Living Sea (2022). Proceeds from the sale of his books are donated, via Focused on Nature, to shark, cetacean or sea turtle conservation.
