"Deep Ocean Photography" was a U.S. Navy exhibition featuring naturalistic photos of the sea floor. The exhibition presented photographic murals of the undersea extinct volcano called the Gilliss Seamount, a three-dimensional scale model of the volcano, and the actual underwater camera equipment used and developed by Walter H. Jahn, Navy research photographer, to acquire the series of pictures. The photographs also revealed evidence of new forms of life, extensive deposits of valuable minerals and evidence of bottom currents. At the time of the exhibit, Mr. Jahn was an underwater photographic specialist with the Naval Ocean Research and Development Activity (NORDA), a field activity of the Office of Naval Research (ONR). The exhibit was an Arthur Ross Exhibit of the Month and was on view in the Akeley Gallery of the American Museum of Natural History from January 21 through May 15, 1983. The exhibit was shown in conjunction with two related exhibitions in the Museum, "Exploring the Deep Frontier: The Adventure of Man in the Sea," and "New Frontier of Life."
