Ocean Soul


“I never cease to be amazed at the extraordinary encounters I have when I’m at sea.” – Brian Skerry

Voyage across the oceans with one of National Geographic’s most seasoned photographers and discover a vast, hidden world beneath the waves. Using his camera to communicate, Brian Skerry has spent more than 10,000 hours underwater, diving eight months of the year – often in predator-infested waters – to tell the oceans’ stories. His images celebrate the mystery of the depths, and offer intimate portraits of marine life. In Ocean Soul, a landmark retrospective of his work, Skerry takes us from the North Atlantic’s glacial waters, where harp seals face off with commercial hunters, to the balmy central Pacific, where he photographed damaged coral ecosystems.
