About this title:

Synopsis: Sharks engender our most primal emotion: fear. Real danger is something we seldom experience in the modern world, protected by the comforts of civilization. Yet fear is deeply inscribed at the core of our being. Jean-Marie Ghislain overcame his fear of water by learning to swim with sharks. By confronting his emotional responses to these graceful predators, he sought to recover from personal trauma, asking himself: Can beauty cure fear? These photographs are among the most beautiful pictures of sharks ever taken. Working entirely with natural light and a focal length as close as possible to that of the human eye, he brings these magnificent creatures closer to us than most could ever dare. The tiniest mark and scar is rendered so clearly that we feel we could reach out and touch them. By sharing his profoundly personal experience with sharks, Jean-Marie Ghislain captures the character and beauty of these exceptional creatures, so often maligned or threatened, and urges us to learn to share our oceans with a new sense of respect and even love.

Book Description Haie rufen in uns eines der elementarsten Gefühle hervor: Angst. Echte Gefahr ist etwas, das wir in der modernen Welt selten erleben, geschützt durch den Komfort der Zivilisation. Doch die Angst ist tief in den Kern unseres Seins eingeschrieben. Jean-Marie Ghislain überwand seine Angst vor dem Wasser, indem er lernte, mit Haien zu schwimmen. Indem er sich mit seinen emotionalen Reaktionen im Angesicht dieser anmutigen Raubtiere konfrontierte, versuchte er, sich von seinem persönlichen Trauma zu heilen und fragte sich: Kann Schönheit die Angst heilen? Diese Fotos gehören zu den schönsten Bildern von Haien, die je aufgenommen wurden. Ghislain arbeitet ausschließlich mit natürlichem Licht und einer Brennweite, die der des menschlichen Auges so nahe wie möglich ist, und bringt uns so diese großartigen Geschöpfe näher, als es die meisten jemals wagen würden. Die kleinste Narbe auf der Haut der Haie ist so deutlich wiedergegeben, dass wir das Gefühl haben, dass wir das Tier berühren könnten. Indem Jean-Marie Ghislain seine zutiefst persönliche Erfahrung mit Haien teilt, fängt er den Charakter und die Schönheit dieser außergewöhnlichen Kreaturen ein, die so oft verleumdet oder bedroht werden, und fordert uns auf, unsere Ozeane mit ihnen aus Respekt und sogar Liebe zu teilen. Das letzte Kapitel enthält eine Miniatur-Übersicht mit allen Fotografien und ausführlichen Informationen zu den fotografierten Tieren und Angaben darüber, wie und wann die Aufnahme entstand. (Text engl.) 30 x 22,5 cm, 192 S., durchg. ganzs. s/w-Abb., geb. Seller Inventory # 1076736
