Under The Sea With Jacques Cousteau's Grandkids

Joe Pugliese photographed Céline and Fabien Cousteau for Town & Country's Philanthropy Issue.

Meet Céline and Fabien Cousteau, grandchildren of Jacques, and headliners of Town & Country's Philanthropy Issue.

Joe Pugliese photographed the sister-and-brother duo at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, Connecticut.

Of course, they were at home in a 110,000-gallon tank containing four native species of shark.

(Would have thought the sharks would be more impressed with Céline's $3,500 Donna Karan dress.)

"Every shoot sticks with me in one way or another, but a project like this is above and beyond," Pugliese remarked.

"It was special to do something I've never done before – make pictures of people underwater – and given the subjects, it's a glimpse at history. Cousteau is an iconic figure and probably the only household name from the maritime world ... and they're carrying on his legacy in such a wonderful manner."
