Brian Skerry's Ocean Soul
National Geographic nature photographer Brian Skerry will exhibit his Ocean Soul collection at the Aquarium of the Pacific starting in December. Skerry has traveled the globe for thirty years documenting the planet’s oceans and aquatic wildlife. Images collected in his book Ocean Soul, published by National Geographic Books, will be on exhibit at the Aquarium from December 1, 2012 through March 1, 2013.
Skerry’s images capture once-in-a-lifetime moments with marine life, from a diver happening upon a gargantuan whale at the sea floor to a tiny fish looking out from inside a discarded soda can. Rich colors and luminous settings draw viewers in and transport them to the beautiful world found underwater. Access to this art exhibit will be included with Aquarium admission.
The Aquarium aims to make science more accessible and to spark visitors’ imaginations through the arts, regularly hosting art exhibits and music and dance performances to communicate stories and messages about the ocean and environment in new ways. Previously, the Aquarium has hosted the award-winning aerial photographs of the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill by Daniel Beltrá and Surfrider’s Ocean Armor exhibit of life-sized animal sculptures.
