Details

Kos Evans has blazed a trail through the photographic world with her unique style and daredevil antics. Famous for her amazing, innovative angles, she stands out because of the often dangerous lengths she goes to to get the best shot. Some of her most well-known images were taken from the top of masts, or hanging over the sides of boats, or in the water, capturing speeding boats from only inches away. This photographic showcase features her most amazing and beautiful pictures. With descriptive captions detailing the background of each shot (how she came to be taking it, the difficulties she encountered), this collection tells the story of Kos's incredible skill and and intrepid acrobatics. Walking on Water is a gorgeous celebration of outstanding marine photography, packed with spectacular images that take you close to the action. For her entire career Kos has captured dramatic, eyecatching shots that made her the envy of her peers; this book provides a unique insight into the work and skills of a remarkable indomitable female photographer who has made her distinctive mark in what is very much a tough man's world. The book also includes a Foreword by Duran Duran singer and keen sailor Simon Le Bon.
