A Film About Lives Transformed by the Sea To some, the ocean is a fearsome and dangerous place. But to others, it's a limitless world of fun, freedom and opportunity where life can be lived to the full. A new documentary presented by Patagonia and directed by Keith Malloy, FISHPEOPLE tells the stories of a unique cast of characters who have dedicated their lives to the sea. From surfers and spearfishers to a former coal miner and a group of at-risk kids in San Francisco, it's a film about the transformative effects of time spent in the ocean-and how we can leave our limitations behind to find deeper meaning in the saltwater wilderness that lies just beyond the shore.
Three years in the making, Water & Light presents new and unseen visions of waves.
Ray’s renowned style ties the tremendous force and fury of an agitated sea to a blink of light in a single water droplet seamlessly - and often on the same page.
To make this book, Ray has hung harnessed out of a doorless helicopter in Hawaii, swam amongst the below freezing north Atlantic seas of Iceland, sailed through the remote and uninhabited island chains of the Indonesian archipelago, documented a once in a decade Tahitian mega swell, and driven for days on end to the desolate reefs and bomboras of Australia’s raw southern and eastern coastlines.
The two fundamental elements in every moment he captures are water and light, and the very best moments are in this book.
