About the Author
Born in America in 1946, David Doubilet began snorkelling at the age of eight; by the age of thirteen, he was taking his first underwater photographs with a pre-war Leica in the green sea off the New Jersey coast. Having studied photography at Boston University, he published his first pictures in National Geographic in 1972 and has continued to do so regularly since then, reporting from oceans around the world.
He has captured ground-breaking images of great white sharks, creatures of the undersea desert, flourescent corals and shipwrecks. Widely acclaimed as the world's leading underwater photographer, Doubilet has received numerous awards including 'Pictures of the Year' repeatedly, as well as the prestigious 'Lennart Nilsson Prize' in 2001.

I was proud of a few photos I took on that holiday but when I saw this book I almost threw my camera away. Doubilet takes underwater photography to another level altogether. This book displays Doubilet's talent and dedication to the full with a diverse portfolio taken over many years from all over the world. The light in his trademark above and below water photo's is so perfectly balanced my friends assumed it was manipulated.
Buy this book for anyone who appreciates natural beauty. My Mother and girlfriend were first on my list and just as impressed.
