Writers and artists often use images of large bodies of water to symbolize the unknown. One look at nature photographer Jorge Cervera Hauser’s photography, though, and it seems that the ocean and its inhabitants are something Hauser knows incredibly well:

What Goes On Underground

Cuncas Water Tunnel Brazil

While we don’t, by and large, live underground, we do work, play, pray, celebrate, visit, smuggle, stockpile, and hide there. The work can be as primitive as mining for coal with donkeys and pickaxes in Pakistan or as sophisticated as unlocking the secrets of the universe at the Large Hadron Collider.

For more singular scenes of the world below the earth’s surface, visit The Atlantic.
