There is a public exhibit of images from Laurent Ballesta and Pierre Descamp at Central World in downtown Bangkok. The exhibit is titled "Planet Ocean: Voyage to the Heart of the Marine Realm” and runs through August 12, 2009.

Here are a few images from the show. If you are in Bangkok with a hour to spare, I highly recommend it. The images are fantastic and the exhibition is nicely executed. The photos look much better at night, and the show is open until 10:00 PM and later on weekends I think.

Looks like a great exhibition, thanks for posting the pics. I have a copy of Planet Ocean and it is truly one of the finest underwater photography books I've ever seen.
