Have you ever dreamed of being a mermaid or merman for a day? Well, you're in luck: There is currently a world-wide project taking place entitled "Project Mermaid Tour", where you can pay and sign up to have your very own Project Mermaid Photoshoot.
In 2012, the renowned photographers Chiara Salomoni and Angelina Venturella came together with their shared love of the ocean to create a project that would raise global awareness about the ever-increasing need to protect our oceans. Since then, the two founded Project Mermaid and have travelled the world, photographing lovely mermaids and mermen in order to "bring awareness as to how precious the ocean and beaches are, and to keep this beautiful environment healthy and clean."
Their work is being turned into a beautiful, educational coffee table book and will be shown on June 8, 2016. The project's art show and art book will benefit SaveOurBeach.org with 50% percent of all proceeds.
