Underwater Lion

Photographer, philanthropist honored Mozert's work called 'pivotal' to park success
Published Oct. 1, 2006

Bruce Mozert has helped people see for about 70 years, either through his lens or a pair of their own.

As the official publicity photographer of Silver Springs Attraction during its heyday, Mozert is credited with inventing underwater photography. His lens introduced an international audience to the Springs' crystal clear waters and the park's "mermaids" - attractive swimsuit models posed underwater in an array of everyday activities like swinging a golf club or playing cards.
