Kurt Arrigo

Kurt was born in Malta in 1969. He spent his childhood and youth scuba diving in the Mediterranean Sea, developing what would become a lifelong passion for aquatic life and photography.

Since 2004 Kurt has been an official Rolex yachting photographer, covering The Rolex Sydney Hobart, The Rolex Fastnet Race and The Rolex Middle Sea Race.

From the Galapagos to the Himalayas, from the icy waters of Norway to the remote South Pacific Kurt has shown his awe and reverence for the planet through his extensive body of work, creating intimate and majestic imagery of the myriad species found in our seas.

He began his career as a professional photographer on assignment at the America’s Cup in 1992, received recognition at the Underwater World Championships in 1995, and within the Communications Arts Photography Annual in 1997. In 2012, he was awarded the prestigious Yacht Racing Image of the Year.

The love for his homeland is documented in three publications: Malta: A Coastal Journey 2005; Grand Harbour Malta 2011; and Malta Maritime 2014. Each work captures the beauty and intricacy of an archipelago steeped in seafaring history, graced with exceptional light.

Diving, sailing and swimming continue to be his foremost passions, as well as supporting conservation projects aimed at promoting the protection of underwater life and the preservation of our seas.

Kurt lives between the islands of Malta and Gozo with his wife and two daughters, and spends his leisure time enjoying the great outdoors, always within close proximity to the sea.
