Really Natural Books: National Geographic's Ocean Soul

National Geographic is famous for excellent photography. Ocean Soul, a new book by Brian Skerry, upholds this tradition and takes it underwater!

Ocean Soul is a love story. It is a story of discovery. It is a story of hope.

The story begins when a boy who loves the sea attends an event with underwater photographers and has an epiphany: "I had always wanted to explore the oceans, but I now understood how I would do this. I would do it with a camera." With sheer deter mination, hard work, and a little bit of luck the boy, named Brian Skerry, realized his dream with more than 20 awe-inspiring articles for National Geographic magazine. Now, with Ocean Soul, he showcases his stunning photography and describes his adventurous life in a gripping portrait of the ocean as a place of beauty and mystery, a place in trouble, and ultimately, a place of hope that will rebound with the proper attention and care.


This book is truly beautiful and would make a great gift for any lover of aquatic life. One of my favorite images is of a lemon shark pup taken in the Bahamas. Skerry artistically documents a world many of us will never see.

It does not appear that the book is made from FSC paper or recycled content.

Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review be positive or negative.
