Sad news about Alessandro Dodi indeed. He was a fantastic photographer. Here is the translation for those of you who don't speak italian.

 

 

Diver dies in Lake Como.

He was from Milan, 48 years old, instructor.

COMO, Nov 19- A professional diver from Milan, Alessandro Dodi, 48 years old, died in the afternoon while diving in lake Como near Argegno.

The expert diver, instructor, had already been diving in the morning with a friend at a depth of about 7 or 8 meters and ascended to the surface regularly. In the afternoon, while his friend came up with no problems, he never did: he had a heart attack.

:) The world of underwater photographers is so small, you sometimes feel you know everyone. How sad to loose someone that made such amazing images.

This is tragic. I've admired his vision and talent for many years. Only 48 too. I'm bummed.

The small world of u/w photography has lost a very talented person.

 

We will miss his images in photo competitions on both sides of the pond.

Very sad news indeed. I didn't know Alessandro Dodi, but I greatly admired his work. To be known and remembered for having created beautiful images is no small thing - I hope someone will collect these comments and on-pass to someone among his family or close friends.
