Stunning underwater photography from this husband & wife team. An Ocean Odyssey is a journey into the deep to meet some of the most beautiful marine creatures on the planet. There is simply amazing quality of light in these photographs and a real sense of communication between photographer and subject."For Stephen Wong and Takako Uno the sea is an infinite blue stage enfolded in a curtain of diffuse light. Their subjects glide across this blue curtain or are mysteriously veiled just beneath its shimmering surface. Their photographs are not just portraits but are pictures of dance, a weightless ballet of whales, the frictionless arc of a dolphin and the appearance of a great white materializing out of the blue void..... This book is full of perfect moments. Stephen and Takako enter the sea as companions with shared vision and desire. Their images reveal an extraordinary intimacy with a world that is open, blue and infinite." David Doubilet, Contributing Photographer-in-Residence, National Geographic Magazine"Husband and wife marine photojournalists Stephen Wong and Takako Uno spent a year recording the intimacies of life in the world's oceans. The result is an inspirational collection of photographs that capture those rare underwater moments divers spend years searching for: encounters with seal pups; pilot fish using a turtle to protect themselves from predators; tiny trevally fish "adopting" a whale shark. Another, shot from below, shows dozens of hammerhead sharks silhouetted against the sun. It should have you running to the travel agent to book your next diving holiday. And if you've never dived before, this may inspire you to start." New Scientist, August 2005
