ITALIAN / ENGLISH EDITION
The book was honored as the best book of the year 2020 at the prestigious Underwater Photography book of the Year
A photobook dedicated to water, a source of life, the mother of all creatures on the planet. A journey through the shapes, colors, lights and behavior of water creatures. From the oceans to the tropical seas to the Red Sea, to the Mediterranean Sea.
Darkness and its mysterious creatures.
The light source of energy for the ecosystem and the creation of spectacular games. Colors, communication codes of a complex and marvelous world.
The shapes, shaped by evolution, are presented in an indescribable variety of functional solutions.
The anthropomorphic masks of apparently monstrous but incredibly fascinating beings.
Life and death, closely linked: the investment of the species on its own future, also through the sacrifice of the individual, in favor of the community; parental care of certain parents.
Predation universal rule of the world of nature, eating and being eaten.
Survival: surviving the most greedy, cynical and determined predator: man. Is this perhaps an impossible mission?
