Product description

Review

'Perfectly captures the spirit of the most beautiful yet fragile wild space we have' Marine Conservation Society Filled with marvels from end to end' Caspar Henderson, author of 'The Book of Barely Imagined Beings' 'No one who has ever been awed by the sea, or struck by its beauty, will fail to be thrilled by this book' Philip Marsden, author of Rising Ground 'Beautifully photographed, full of delights and born of a deep love for the ocean' --Gavin Pretor-Pinney, author of The Cloudspotter's Guide

'The writing is superb, almost poetic. She has that talent which all the best writers have: if you look closely at the words you won't understand why it's quite so good. [And] as well as being a gifted writer, Woollett is also a talented photographer and the images in the book are stunning. She has an unusual breadth of talent as a photographer: her seascapes are just as good as her closeups of marine life. Weather is captured exceptionally well and you can sense the moods of the sea. I really felt that I was there on the beach as I sat in the garden and read. Sea Journal is a classy book: it has all the bells and whistles of an upmarket coffee table book at a fraction of the price and with a lot more substance.' --The Bookbag.co.uk

'Someone once said that a great book should leave you with many experiences, and Sea Journal by photographer Lisa Woollett certainly does that... Woollett is an award-winning documentary photographer and some of the photographs are so startling that they look like paintings. They are accompanied throughout by a thoughtfully creative layout and beautiful line drawings. The more surprising element of the book, in what at first glance appears to be a coffee-table art book, is the poetic prose and engaging storytelling which accompany each location and discovery, and the depth and accuracy of information presented, especially in relation to the marine life that she photographs. Interesting, inspiring and beautiful to look at, the book s evocative storytelling and captivating images can t help but stir you to head to your local beach in search of a washed-up treasure or a stunning sunset.' --Eden Project Magazine

About the Author

Lisa Woollett is from a long line of scavengers. Her grandfather was from a South London family in the 'scavenging professions' and she grew up on cliffs on the Isle of Sheppey, spending much of her childhood collecting and fossicking along the shore. After a degree in Psychology she studied Documentary Photography and from 1993 worked as a photographer - past clients include The Independent on Sunday, The Observer and Great Ormond Street Hospital. Since 2004 she has lived with her family on the south coast of Cornwall, in a house shared with buckets and boxes of beach finds. Her first book, Sea and Shore Cornwall: common and curious findings, won a Holyer an Gof Publishers' Award 2014. Current photographic work sells through galleries and exhibitions.
