10 Beautiful Photos Celebrating World Oceans Day 2012

Brian Skerry’s photography is nothing short of amazing. Working as a conservation photographer, he pushes his images to do more than look nice — he wants them to inspire change, to improve how we treat the oceans and the lifeforms living in it.

Ocean Soul, his newest book, shows off the amazing photographs Skerry has taken over the years, and describes the ocean “as a place of beauty and mystery, a place in trouble, and ultimately, a place of hope that will rebound with the proper attention and care.”
