Spécialiste de la photographie sous-marine, Kurt Arrigo réalise des prises de vues inédites à mi-chemin entre le sport et l'exploration maritime. Prises aussi bien au dessus qu'en dessous de la surface de l'eau, ses photographies jouent sur les différents effets qu'y provoquent la pénétration et le filtrage de la lumière. Il parvient également à révéler la fluidité et la grâce des mouvements des chevaux de course dans l'océan offrant à la vue une merveilleuse sensation de liberté et d'évasion.
