As part of this year’s World Oceans Day celebrations in June, S.E.A. Aquarium hosted the first National Geographic Photo Exhibition, which showcased the amazing work of celebrated underwater photographer Brian Skerry.
After a successful first series, the second series titled Cold and Pristine features another set of incredible photographs from his fall 2011 monograph Ocean Soul.
After 30 years of exploring the ocean, I never cease to be amazed at the extraordinary encounters that I have while I’m at sea.
Brian has been a contributing photographer for National Geographic magazine since 1998. An award-winning photographer, he is renowned for his aesthetic sense and his journalistic drive for relevance.
In three decades, he has spent over 10,000 hours underwater capturing his subjects, often in the face of extreme conditions. Beyond celebrating the beauty of the ocean, his breathtaking images also help to bring attention to pressing issues that endanger the ocean and its inhabitants.
Check out his 2010 TED Talk where he shared stories of the ocean through his work as a photographer.
