Overview

American Waters charts underwater photographer Alex Kirkbride's astonishing three-year journey through every state in the U.S.

From flooded quarries to freezing Alaskan waters, from cranberry bogs to Elvis's swimming pool, Kirkbride has amassed a unique collection of pictures.

His stunning photographs are accompanied throughout by a compelling account of this American odyssey: the landscape, the challenges of non-stop driving and diving, the hazardous weather and the memorable people encountered along the way.

An uncompromisingly creative approach and unerring technical ability have enabled Kirkbride to capture artful, beautiful and surprising images. These include the majesty of a hundred swirling sea lions, a rarely-sighted whale placenta, eerily still wrecks and other man-made detritus, silenced by the American waters in which they lie.
