Dr. Maria Bowling is a full time resident of the East end of Long Island. She travels to far away sapphire seas, lagoons and tide pools to document cetaceans and sea life in the wild. Each underwater photograph is taken with one breath while free diving with only fins, snorkel and her camera. It is her hope that her photographs convey the tender beauty and grace of the ocean.
On land, she enjoys studying and photographing birds and the beautiful watery world of the shorelines. Many hours are spent waiting for just the right moment to capture the expressions of the mighty osprey, the shimmer of the hummingbirds and other natural beauties.
Beyond the salty natural world, Dr. Bowling maintains a private practice in Chinese medicine in East Hampton, New York.
We are so happy to present selections from Sea Birds and One Breath (coming soon!).
