He has taken some of the most important and impressive underwater images in a career that spans more than three decades. David Doubilet has set the standards others follow. He is a reporter, an artist, a story-teller and a powerful advocate. He has introduced the beauty of our oceans and the wonders that live in them to millions. This month, he publishes a 240-page retrospective of his greatest work: Water Light Time (pictured above). It is an inspiring and dramatic book, which takes underwater photography to new levels. Here is a selection of just a few of the images it contains.
