This collection of Muller's images, including the first-known photograph of a great white breaching at night, is a catalog of adrenalin and awe. Arranged geographically, it follows Muller's ocean adventures from black tip and sand tiger sharks in South Africa to great hammerheads in the Bahamas, with thrilling narratives from each trip documenting the challenges and near-misses along the way.To compliment Muller's work for advocacy organizations such as WildAid and EarthEcho, the images are contextualized with essays from Philippe Cousteau, Jr. and marine biologist Alison Kock, who discuss exploration and conservation of our oceanic kingdom. Culture writer Arty Nelson adds an overview of Muller's work, while a technical section explains the precise equipment behind these spectacular shots. Together, these insightful texts and awesome images offer a record of breathtaking photographic feats, a tribute to the beauty and might of the shark, and a rallying cry for its fragile future.
About the Author
Los Angeles-based photographer Michael Muller has circled the globe shooting celebrities, rock stars, outlaw bikers, super heroes, and elite athletes for such publications as Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, The New York Times Magazine, and Harper's Bazaar. In 2007 he turned his lens underwater and began photographing sharks as they've never been seen before.
Complete with essays and assistance from conservationists, marine researchers, and even Philippe Cousteau, Jr. (the grandson of underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau), this TASCHEN book is extraordinary not only in its aesthetic wonder but also in its ability to change and inspire the way we see and think about these majestic creatures of the deep. - Flood magazine, California"
