The Extraordinary Creatures of the Abyss
These pictures are from the book “The Deep” by Claire Nouvian.
Combining the latest scientific discoveries with
astonishing color imagery, The Deep takes readers on a voyage into the
darkest realms of the ocean. Revealing nature’s oddest and most
mesmerizing creatures in crystalline detail, The Deep features more
than two hundred color photographs of terrifying sea monsters, living
fossils, and ethereal bioluminescent creatures, some photographed here
for the very first time. Accompanying these breathtaking photographs
are contributions from some of the world’s most respected researchers
that examine the biology of deep-sea organisms, the ecology of deep-sea
habitats, and the history of deep-sea exploration.
