Description
Far more than images of rolling waves, misting spray, and rugged coastlines, French marine photographer Philip Plisson gives us a sparkling portrait of man and the sea together, from ancient seaside villages to massive ships in dry dock, from bays full of racing yachts to a child playing on the beach. This thick brick of a book presents some 200 images (most of them filling two pages edge to edge, at nearly 15 x 10 inches), and includes 16 double gatefolds that open out to 29-inch panoramas. The photos are captioned in a thumbnail index, allowing the full drama of each image to be explored without distraction.

"Photographer Plisson here offers arresting images of these vast bodies of water in all their incarnations.... Some portray human interaction with the ocean: fisherman casting their lines from a craggy jetty; waves crashing over a railing, soaking onlookers; hundreds of pleasure-seekers wading into the water's edge on a summer day. Others depict the sea's vast and mottled surface, with nary a ship insight. The book's design, which positions all the captions at the end, allows readers to be swept up by the remarkable images.... From Portugal to Polynesia, Plisson succeeds in documenting the sea's tremendous presence."Publishers Weekly
