Bottom: the anthropologist Louis Leakey, ; Padaung women in Burma, ; a sadhu, with his begging bowl, in India, ; the Temple of Luxor, Egypt, Magazines in their great age, before they were unmoored from their spines and digitally picked apart, before perpetual blogging made them permeable packages, changing mood at every hour and up all night like colicky infants—magazines were expected to be magisterial registers of the passing scene. Yet, though they were in principle temporal, a few became dateless, timeless.
His images celebrate the mystery of the depths and offer portraits of creatures so intimate they sometimes appear to have been shot in a studio. Skerry dives eight months of the year, often in extreme conditions beneath Arctic ice or in predator-infested waters, and has even lived at the bottom of the sea to get close to his subjects. In the book and this presentation, Skerry takes us from the glacial waters of the North Atlantic, where harp seals face off with commercial hunters, to the balmy central Pacific, where he photographed damaged coral ecosystems rebuilding themselves.

The Islander has all the same tools for exploration—Zodiacs, kayaks, snorkeling gear, video microscope—but it does not have a glass-bottom boat. The staff- and crew-to-guest ratio is the same on both ships ensuring excellent service whenever you choose to explore. Air temperatures vary from island to island, and water temperatures can vary greatly since they are affected by converging currents and upwellings that create the rich seas that support so much life.
At National GeographicDaniel Stone explains how photographer Ernie Button has created a fantasy universe from the sediment left in a drained tumbler. To make his images, Button takes pictures of the dried residue from a variety of Scotches, then trains multicoloured lights on their unique patterns. Thanks to this artful treatment, plus some Photoshop work, Glenlivet produces lavalike waves, Balvenie yields what could be a glowing celestial body, and Macallan becomes a vortex resembling a blossom.
