Night At: The Shark Aquarium
As part of the Night At campaign series, Airbnb gets access to some of the most iconic spaces in the world, and transforms them into Airbnb homes for one night only. In April 2016, winners from our community slept in a bedroom submerged in the shark tank of The Paris Aquarium, where the only thing separating them from the sharks was a 360-degree wall of glass. Knowing that photographing this space would pose many technical challenges - shooting live sharks, through concave glass walls and several feet of water, without strobe lighting, in order to ensure the safety of the sharks - I brought in photographer Dan Forbes, whose precision and skill as a still life photographer made him uniquely qualified to execute the creative brief.
