Underwater photography of scuba divers, coral, or wildlife can sometimes seem commonplace regardless of the remote destination or subject, but Indonesian photographer Hengki Koentjoro (here and here) bucks the trend with his desaturated, dark, and often brooding images taken in and around Jakarta.

While his landscape photography above ground is often dreamlike and mysterious, as soon as the blue is removed from the ocean it introduces a slightly menacing tone that while deeply beautiful, sets the viewer a little on edge. Oh, and then there’s the sharks too.

You should get lost in his photos for a bit. Find him on 500px, Flickr, and Art Limited.
