We have learned that our good friend, superb photographer, talented architect and fellow diver, Ib Hansen, passed away on Sunday from colon cancer. There will only be a small service for family, and there will be a celebration of Ib's life at some point in the future.
Ib approached his photography as an artist; he taught me to "get out in the blue", and that sharks were the ultimate in nature's design, and that their protection was essential to the health of our oceans. Ib incorporated many of the designs he saw underwater into his award winning architecture.
We have lost a true artist, and dear man. May he be flying with the mantas and sharks he loved and captured so well. You may wish to visit his website to enjoy his images.

Our hearts are with his family in their loss,

Marli Wakeling
