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 telling the oceans' stories. His images celebrate the mystery of the depths and offer portraits of creatures so intimate they sometimes appear to have been shot in a studio. Since 1998, Skerry has produced over 25 feature stories for National Geographic magazine. He was named 2017 National Geographic Explorer of the Year and 2014 National Geographic Photography Fellow; is an 11-time award winner in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, and has received awards from Pictures of the Year International, Nature's Best and Communication Arts.
