“Ocean Soul”, by renowned photographer Brian Skerry, takes you on an unprecedented journey through the magical realms of the ocean to reveal a world few have ever seen.
Over the past 30 years Skerry has traveled the globe, connecting with the wildlife he encounters and interpreting their stories through compelling photography. Now he brings these poetic images to you with one goal: to shed much needed light on these overlooked creatures, and in turn creating appreciation for them and an awareness of the need for conservation.
“Ocean Soul” is a story of discovery. The story begins when a boy who loves the sea attends an event with underwater photographers and has an epiphany: “I had always wanted to explore the oceans, but I now understood how I would do this. I would do it with a camera.” Now, in “Ocean Soul”, he showcases his stunning photography and describes his adventurous life in a gripping portrait of the ocean as a place of beauty and mystery, a place in trouble, and ultimately, a place of hope that will rebound with the proper attention and care.
The exhibition is accompanied by Ocean Soul, (National Geographic Books, 2011; $50 hardcover).
