Internationally renowned adventure and water photographer Ted Grambeau made a personal commitment to document the ocean at sunrise, creating a body of work that would tell a story and communicate a message of change.

For over forty years, Melbourne born Ted has been consumed by his quest to capture the world through his lens. An obsession that has led him on a journey to nearly 100 countries, exhausting over a dozen passports.

With formal studies in Illustrative photography at RMIT University in Melbourne, Grambeau communicates an intimate relationship with ‘light’, a sophisticated understanding of its various expressions – the refraction, reflection and absorptions. The documentary nature of this project requires that Ted be at the water’s edge before dawn, when most of us haven’t even thought about opening our eyes.
