Publisher Comments:

and#160;
Spanning from the arctic to the tropics, from large-scale views of Australiaand#8217;s barrier reef to close-up images of sea turtles, Man and Sea is a compelling, entirely unique journey through a fascinating world. Spectacular aerial images by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and striking underwater photographs by Brian Skerry offer a top-to-bottom tour of the worldand#8217;s oceans, while the enlightening text covers the seaand#8217;s critical mechanisms, from currents to food chains. Inspiring interviews of some of the worldand#8217;s most respected researchers and activists also offer cutting-edge insight into the many challenges, such as overfishing and pollution, facing the oceans today. Exploring the critical and ever-evolving relationship between mankind and the ocean, Man and Sea is an unforgettable portrait of the global issue of sustainable development.

Praise for Man and Sea:

and#147;Mr. Skerryand#8217;s Technicolor image of hard corals on the Kingman Reef far out in the Pacific and Mr. Bertrandand#8217;s shot of the pale sand of Whitsunday Island near the Great Barrier Reef are cool and timeless portraits of treasures we might easily think limitless.and#8221; and#151;The Editors, Wall Street Journal and#160;

Everest and Mammoth Hot Springs, renowned aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand presents striking color images that put our home planet in a whole new perspective.
