The Last Centurion
Ernie Brooks
20" x 24"

As a noted professional photographer, educator and ambassador to the industry, Mr. Brooks has won international acclaim for underwater photography. As a working professional, he has contributed to numerous magazines and organizations including: Cousteau Society, , Ocean Realm, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Nature Conservancy and Natural Wildlife, to name only a few. He is a recipient of numerous honors and awards including: 1973 'Triton Award' Inner Space Pacifica, Hawaii; 1975 'NOGI' The Underwater Society of America; 1977 'National Award' Professional Photographers of America; 1971 through 1980 Hall of Fame elector Photographic Arts and Science Foundation; 'Hall of Fame' Underwater Photographic Society; and his most recent honor, 'The 1996 Partner's Award,' was received from the American Oceans Campaign for his lifelong commitment and dedication to our oceans.

His work has been exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Our World Underwater, and was honored at the Smithsonian 'Planet Earth exhibit. Ernest H. Brooks II has participated in projects of international recognition including: the photographic investigation into the Shroud of Turin (1978 Shroud of Turin Research Project); and photo-documentation of Arctic research station activities.

Mr. Brooks has been a trailblazer in the development of underwater photographic technique. I don't think that blue, an inherent color of the ocean, really adds to many photographs - and I like the quality of black and white. Also, I get the personal satisfaction of working with black and white in being able to control the development and printing."

The ocean and underwater photography are among his main interests. In the pursuit of dramatic marine images, he has descended into the fascinating waters beneath the polar icecaps as well as into the depths of almost every ocean on Earth.
