Sharks: Michael Muller (Taschen)

The super predators of the sea are among the most fascinating creatures on earth. But in order to photograph them, Michael Muller has to dive into another world. Under the sea, patented camera rig in hand, he stalks black tip and sand tiger sharks in South Africa, hammerheads in the Bahamas, and creates the first-known photograph of great white breaching at night. Muller’s images are ethereally haunting, and his window into the secret life of these deadly fish is so intimate the reader might wonder if the photographer is, himself, at least half shark.
