These pictures are considered to be some of the fist instances of underwater photography and filming.
Bruce Mozert was Born 1916 and passed 2015, he is credited to be the, or one of the pioneers of a technique that is now very widespread.  Waterproof cameras have been around for some time now, recently we have seen the first sales of water resistant mobiles as well.  Mozert is thought to be the first person to construct a waterproof case, to take still and moving pictures underwater, in the Florida State Park, Silver Springs.  He worked on the Tarzan movies in the 1950s, providing all of the underwater scenes. The results he was getting, were so good and unique, that he was employed by Hollywood Studios to add a new dimension to their films.
