The underwater photography exhibition titled "Chasing Dreams in Dark Blue" is currently taking place at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing and will run through Aug 15.

The exhibition marks the museum's first-ever marine underwater photography display, featuring a collection of 60 captivating pieces by Yue Hongjun, a winner of the Golden Statue Award for China Photography, the highest award for photographers in the country.

The showcased photos vividly capture the vibrancy of marine species and convey the ecological concept of protecting the ocean.

As an entrepreneur, Yue is deeply passionate about both the ocean and photography. His commitment extends beyond business, as he actively engages in public welfare undertakings. He has chosen photography as a powerful medium to call for more people to safeguard the ocean and its marine inhabitants. Over the course of a decade, he has undertaken over 700 dives, spanning regions from South America to North America and from the Pacific Ocean to the Indian Ocean, all to capture the mesmerizing underwater scenes.
