American Waters Summary

American Waters by Alex Kirkbride

American Waters charts underwater photographer Alex Kirkbride's astonishing three-year journey through every state in the US. From flooded quarries to freezing Alaskan waters, from cranberry bogs to Elvis' swimming pool, Kirkbride has amassed a unique collection of pictures. His creative approach and unerring technical ability enabled him to capture startling images - including the rare sight of a whale placenta and eerily still and beautiful wreck shots. The photographs are accompanied throughout with a compelling account of this American odyssey: the challenges of non-stop driving and diving; the hazardous weather and the memorable people encountered.
