About the author(s)

Born in America in 1946, David Doubilet began snorkelling at the age of eight. By the age of 13, he was taking his first underwater photographs with a pre-war Leica in the green sea off the New Jersey coast. Having studied photography at Boston University, he published his first pictures in National Geographic in 1972 and has continued to do so regularly since then, reporting from oceans around the world.

Doubilet has captured groundbreaking images of great white sharks, creatures of the undersea desert, flourescent corals and shipwrecks. Arguably the world's leading underwater photographer, Doubilet has received numerous awards including 'Pictures of the Year' Competition repeatedly, as well as the prestigious Lennart Nilsson prize in 2001.
