“Sea of Light” presents, in a series of stunning photographs, the underwater life of California’s Channel Islands. Although these Islands have held human inhabitants for the last 13,000 years, waters around them are only beginning to be explored. Photographer Richard Salas takes us through a marine biosphere where humanity’s impact is an undeniable force. While many new endemic species are discovered every year, others have disappeared from it completely. This collection envelops the reader in a fragile, shifting world. The striking power of these images radiate the light of unique vitality that Richard sees in every organism he encounters.
