Spanning from the Arctic to the tropics, from large-scale views of breathtaking coastlines to close-up images of sea life, From Above and Below is a compelling, entirely unique journey through a fascinating world. Spectacular aerial images by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and underwater photographs by Brian Skerry offer a top-to-bottom tour of the world's oceans, while the illuminating text covers the sea's critical mechanisms, from currents to food chains. The greatest challenges facing the oceans, such as overfishing and pollution, are also investigated. Telling the inspiring stories of research and activism occurring around the world, the book features cutting-edge insight and interviews with experts from a wide variety of fields. Through the dual perspective of two acclaimed photographers, From Above and Below explores the crucial and ever-evolving relationship between mankind and the ocean, forming an unforgettable portrait of the global need for sustainable development.
