Beneath the surface of the world's waters lie landscapes, species, vegetations and populations as diverse and splendid as those on land, yet these kingdoms have been explored by few. Water Light Time is an extraordinary look at the work of David Doubilet, a pioneering artist and diver who is widely acclaimed as the world's leading underwater photographer.

Water Light Time includes over twenty-five years of Doubilet's work, to reveal the mesmerising beauty of more than thirty bodies of water rich with fascinating life forms.

About the author: Born in America in 1946, David Doubilet began snorkelling at the age of eight; by the age of thirteen, he was taking his first underwater photographs with a pre-war Leica in the green sea off the New Jersey coast. Having studied photography at Boston University, he published his first pictures in National Geographic in 1972 and has continued to do so regularly since then, reporting from oceans around the world. He has captured groundbreaking images of great white sharks, creatures of the undersea desert, fluorescent corals and shipwrecks. Doubilet has received numerous awards including 'Pictures of the Year' repeatedly, as well as the prestigious 'Lennart Nilsson Prize' in 2001.
