In this extraordinary exhibit, Brian Skerry provides unprecedented access to life in and around the worlds' coral reefs. Whether it is in the shallow water of Kingman Reef or the grandeur of Millennium Atoll, Brian has spent his entire life exploring and illustrating the vitality of life in the ocean. Colorful images of the reefs and the species who live there draw in the observer, demonstrating both the diversity and the fragility of life in the soul of the sea.

WHY I DO WHAT I DO
I was seduced by the ocean's siren song at a very young age and wanted to explore beneath the waves. After becoming a diver, I discovered photography and had an epiphany -- I would explore the ocean with a camera. Being a visual storyteller about the undersea realms was a passion I could not ignore. Over time, I began to see problems in the oceans -- issues that others did not see. My work today is a combination of celebratory work and reportage. I create images that help people fall in love with the sea, while also shining a light on the problems and the potential solutions.
For Coral Crucible, our Impact Partners are working in the water and in the laboratory (and together) to plant and sustain newly-planted coral around the world.
