The ocean has been a rich subject for artists since time immemorial. To pay tribute to the beauty of the ocean and to celebrate the artists that have captured its many extraordinary faces, photography editor Sue Hostetler has compiled work from eighty of the most prominent contemporary photographers. The book features contributions by Vicki Goldberg, renowned photography critic; Jean-Michel Cousteau and Robert Redford, who are lifelong environmentalists; and a message from the Natural Resources Defense Council which is dedicated to preserving natural habitats the world over. From the haunting work of Shirin Neshat to the pop-techno vision of Mariko Mori, to the elegantly romantic work of Elliott Erwitt, Oceans is a unique and stunning volume. [via]
