The Photos and Drawings of Jan Kocian

Jan Kocian -  I was born in landlocked Czechoslovakia, but diving became my love early in life,  getting my certification in the fresh cold waters of old quarry, before wet suits were available to the diving public behind the Iron Curtain. After emigrating from there in 1968, the sea stayed close to my heart.  I worked on research ships in the Pacific,  enjoying the warm waters of the tropics for many years. Not until I retired to Whidbey Island in Washington State  I started to pay closer attention to the smaller creatures of the underwater world. And what a wonderful realm it is.  After caves, wrecks and grand vistas, I  am just beginning to discover the beauty of macro world.
