“Every day a little bit of magic enters our lives and envelops us in the unlikely miracle of water. Fog, mist, rain, tide, ice, teardrop. Water is the magician, the alchemist, the poet, the cradle, the melody of the elemental universe. Forged from the hottest fires of creation, it’s components, hydrogen and oxygen, bonded in a dance of atoms and created a world of water that became the stage for life itself…..” — Epilogue by Jean-Michel Cousteau.
Water Culture features a kaleidoscope of the elemental qualities of water in a series of photographs from the works of over 80 photographers, including Yann Arthus-Bertrand, David Doubliet, Andreas Gursky, Nan Goldin, Dr. Richard Murphy, Mario Sorrenti, Mario Testino, with photographs that are breathtaking to behold in their fantasy and equilibrium.

Kennedy Jr., and the Epilogue by Jean-Michel Cousteau.
