Showcasing the exceptional photographs of one of today's foremost underwater photographers, this volume provides readers with a unique opportunity to explore the hidden crevices of the ocean world - close up. Using the technique of microphotography, award-winning photographer Jeffrey Rotman zooms in on such specific features as a fish eye, gills, and scales, immortalizing the most miniscule details in photographs that resemble abstract paintings. Coral formations become castles, a fish's fin becomes fine art. Through these images, readers get a sense of the vast diversity of the underwater world. We glimpse eyes that peer out of the darkness, discover camouflage patterns, and experience various textures, shifting light and shadows. The artistic presentation of this book, designed to bring out the pictorial richness of each image, supplemented by an insightful text, offers a superb and truly unique celebration of the rare and seldom-seen treasures of the ocean world.
