Synopses & Reviews
In the much-anticipated follow-up to his 2002 international triumph The Sea, photographer Philip Plisson figuratively widens his lens to provide a more global focus on the sea and the humans who depend on it for survival.
As magnificent as its predecessor, The Eternal Sea includes more than 200 new and unpublished images of oceans in more than 50 countries, seen close to the surface or from the air. Marine expert Christian Buchets accompanying text incisively examines many contemporary environmental issues affecting oceans around the world. Featuring 12 spectacular gatefolds, The Eternal Sea continues to surprise and beguile the reader with breathtaking images illustrating the beauty, fury, and sheer ecological importance of the ocean.
