Sea Change Book

Buy Hardcover or eBook

There is a wild sea-forest growing beneath the wind and waves at the southern tip of Africa. Here, millions of creatures live in a borderless realm still ungoverned by man and it is strange and beautiful beyond the telling.

Craig Foster and Ross Frylinck grew up playing in these forests, and this early immersion in the ocean had a subtle and profound impact on the course of their lives. The book, edited by Pippa Ehrlich, published by Quivertree, documents their rediscovery of the forests of their childhood and showcases Craig’s photographic work over the past decade.

Craig has become a world expert in kelp forest ecology and developed the world’s first form of underwater tracking. Diving without wetsuits in the icy waters, both Ross and Craig discovered how immersion in the cold generated new reserves of energy for their minds and bodies, and how curious forest creatures became more receptive to them.

“What an inspiration! I have rarely, if ever, seen a book which is as equally visually and textually stunning as this one. And that it comes now, when we are ruining the oceans, their reefs and the life that they sustain…Sea Change is an awakening”.
