A stunning and quirky collection of underwater photography, with miniature figures posing in an inventive aquatic world.
Created by world-renowned underwater photographers, this gorgeous book takes an alternative look at mankind’s journey by using models of miniature people placed in beautiful and humorous situations undersea. Providing an alternative perspective on life, Small Blue World is a clever and thought-provoking collection of impressive imagery that tackles some of the wider ecological issues facing our oceans. Ultimately, it poses the question: how can humans and nature exist in harmony? Playful, perceptive and visually striking, this impressive and often humorous book uses photography and the power of the imagination to entertain, inspire and offer a different outlook on our lives. An incredible book featuring photographs of miniature figures living an underwater life in the future.
