To all well-known mosaic of the Swedish wreck "Mars", made by Tomasz Stachura, appeared on the covers of foreign editions of National Geographic magazine in Germany and in Sweden. The whole situation is indeed noteworthy as a great success, because it is only the third time in the history of the magazine, when the picture of Polish photographer goes on the cover of another country.
Through the last two years this legendary mosaic of the Swedish wreck aroused admiration around the world. Consisting of approx. 650 photos (selected from over 1200!), the whole is a true work of art and the level of difficulty to carry out and a full size are able to understand only those who realize what an underwater photography on deep wrecks really is.
It is one thing to dive to 70m, and another repeatedly dive to 70m with a camera and make a few hundred images, which then through hundreds of hours a person has to wrestle in a graphics program to combine them together like pieces of a puzzle. No wonder that for the combination of hard work, talent and extraordinary skills Stachura was honored with this remarkable distinction (which he refers as his Mount Everest), which is the cover the foreign edition of National Geographic. Before him on the "top" climbed only Tomasz Tomaszewski and Marcin Jamkowski.
All those who had the opportunity to get to know the Tom's present works know that behind the lens he is doing a great job. Whether if it is a wreck of "Breeze" or "Mars", the guy can show the units in such a light that makes you want to run for a dive. Recognition from the National Geographic confirms only the position that he made for himself over the years also abroad.
"Poland since 2012 has a great contribution to this project, we significantly support him from the beginning, both in diving and with equipment. Polish divers generally are known in the world as experts of technical diving - they specialize in both penetration of shipwrecks and exploration of difficult and deep caves. In the project Mars we were treated as a special operations team, when it was necessary to "enter" a wreck or to take pictures of construction, eg. from the bottom, it would be sent the Polish team. Our mosaic showed Mars in such a way that everyone, even a layman can see it very clearly"- explains the owner of Santi.
In October, the project "Mars" received a grant of National Geographic, so that in the coming year it will be possible to create a reconstruction of the 3D object. For this will serve the materials collected from the very beginning of the search. As a result, for a while we get a digitally mapped version of the wreck with all the details.
