The Oceans of the World Are Important! Learn More About Them with Photographer, Brian Skerry

Voyage across the oceans with one of National Geographic’s most seasoned photographers, Brian Skerry, and discover a vast, hidden world beneath the waves. Don’t miss out when he makes a stop at Tobin Center on Sunday, September 29th at 4 pm!

Using his camera to communicate, Brian Skerry has spent more than 10,000 hours underwater telling the oceans’ stories. His images celebrate the mystery of the depths and offer portraits of creatures so intimate they sometimes appear to have been shot in a studio. Skerry dives eight months of the year, often in extreme conditions beneath Arctic ice or in predator-infested waters.

In 2011, National Geographic Books published Ocean Soul, a landmark retrospective of Skerry’s photographs. In the book and this presentation, Skerry takes us from the glacial waters of the North Atlantic, where harp seals face off with commercial hunters, to the balmy central Pacific, where he photographed damaged coral ecosystems rebuilding themselves. Since then Skerry’s been unstoppable.

On stage, Skerry is a passionate spokesman for the oceans he loves to photograph. His riveting presentations to audiences at TED, Harvard, and London’s Royal Geographic Society inspire reverence for the marine realm and offer hope for protecting the vitality of the world’s oceans. And now is your chance to have a good time with Brian Skerry during Ocean Soul!
