“BLUE HOPE” – A new book by National Geographic

Bryce is honored to be one of the contributing photographers for this new coffee table book coming out August 15 – by National Geographic & La Mer.  Available for pre-order now.

From National Geographic: Dazzling photographs combine with inspiring insights from international ocean icon Sylvia Earle and other notable ocean advocates, paying a poignant tribute to the beauty and magic of the ocean and shedding light on its abundant gifts to the planet.

This lyrical ode to the ocean marries the insights and inspiration of ocean advocate Sylvia Earle, and other experts and celebrities, with the world’s most stunning photographs of beaches, coral reefs, and underwater life. All combine to express Earle’s passionate message: Life depends on the ocean, and to save it we must love it. In seven essays, she recounts the milestones of a life spent pioneering and protecting the ocean. Supporting facts and maps bolster this book’s clear and hopeful message: We can all play a role in keeping the heart of our planet alive.

Our work is part of an upcoming National Geographic and FOX documentary series called “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey”

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey will invent new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the original series, including the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination.

Uniting scepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with visual, emotional and spiritual elements, it will be a transcendent experience – a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale we know.

Watch the trailer for Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey below:
