I've had this book for a while, and I remember when I bought it, how excited I was. And of course it sat on my shelf even though it is full of photography, and barely any words. It wouldn't take long to get through really. It's a coffee table book, but perfect if you are into photography and undersea animals.

There's a short intro in the beginning of the book, on how Laita photographed (most of) the creatures: in his studio in tanks. It's similar to the technique used by David Liittschwager and S...more
Technically brilliant, full of beautiful aquatic animals. If I'd seen this book before Serpentine, I'd probably have given it five stars. However, I did see Serpentine first, and I love it best. It's undoubtedly harder to pose fish than serpents. And snakes, to my eye, are far more lovely than fish.

Still, absolutely gorgeous. Laita's eye is something very special.
Another beautiful book by Laita. And definitely better than "Serpentine". But, again, to say that I "read" this book is a stretch....however, I did spend about an hour gushing over the beautiful photographs. Sure will be a shame in 40 years when our oceans are lifeless. :(
Beautiful photographs, excellent composition, and a brilliant way of displaying the true colours of sea creatures without the distortion of the water.
A unique set of photographs, some really amazing. By the end of the book I was wishing for views of the animals in their natural habitats too.
