Voyage across the oceans with one of National Geographic’s most seasoned photographers and discover a vast, hidden world beneath the waves in Ocean Soul. Using his camera to communicate, Brian Skerry has spent more than 10,000 hours underwater telling the oceans’ stories. Skerry dives eight months of the year, often in extreme conditions beneath Arctic ice or in predator-infested waters. While on assignment, he has lived on the bottom of the sea, spent months aboard fishing boats, and traveled in everything from snowmobiles to canoes to the Goodyear blimp to get the picture. A passionate spokesman for ocean life, his presentations inspire reverence for the marine realm and offer hope for protecting the vitality of the world’s oceans.
For National Geographic magazine, Skerry has covered a wide range of stories, from the harp seal’s struggle to survive in frozen waters to the alarming decrease in the world’s fisheries, both cover stories. He has also worked on assignment for or had images featured in magazines such as Sports Illustrated, U.S. News and World Report, BBC Wildlife, GEO, Smithsonian, Esquire, Audubon, and Men's Journal, as well as countless publications worldwide. In 2011, National Geographic Books released Ocean Soul, a landmark retrospective of Skerry’s photographs.
