Rob Stewart is a Canadian photographer who never held an underwater camera until production for Sharkwater began. Stewart’s goal? To depict sharks in their beautiful, natural habitat. But there is a message to be derived from Sharkwater: the human impact has been taking its toll on the shark’s natural habitat. “An elephant falls for ivory in and the whole world goes crazy,” Stewart says. “Elephants kill 200 people a year. We kill 100 million sharks a year and nobody notices or cares. Nobody wants to fight for the protection of sharks because people view them as dangerous predators of people. Yet sharks kill five people a year, on average.”Critics are raving about Sharkwater and audiences should soon follow suit on Friday November 2nd, the film’s theatrical release. © 2007 Ali Naderzad
