"Sharks are in many ways a symbol of the ocean. Exceptionally mysterious, powerful, unknown, frightening and of course beautiful. They run through the human psyche and run through our lives."
|David Doubilet at Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies|
"Photography: The Language of Conservation" features David Doubilet, one of the world's most celebrated underwater photographers. Since his first assignment in 1971 Doubilet has become one the most published photographers in the history of the National Geographic Magazine. Doubilet has spent five decades descending beneath the surface in the far corners of the world from interior Africa, equatorial coral reefs, and rich temperate seas to beneath the polar ice. He believes photography is a language that creates a visual voice for the oceans and connects us to the beauty and silent devastation happening within the invisible world below. Doubilet serves as contributing editor for several publications and is an author of twelve titles, including the award-wining Water Light Time, and his photographic awards include numerous Picture of the Year, BBC Wildlife, Communication Arts and World Press awards.
