This unique collection of ocean photography and haiku poetry celebrates the sea. Like a photograph, a haiku poem seeks to capture a singlemoment in time. In this beautifully produced book, 17 stunning ocean photographs by multi-award-winning Australian photographer, Kian Bates, have each inspired 17 powerful haiku poems by award-winning Australian writer, Dannika Patterson. Together, this unique pairing of photography and poetry has produced the perfect gift book for ocean-lovers, displaying both style and substance. More than serving simply as a striking coffee table book, Kian and Dannika hope that SeaSpray17 will help to connect individuals and families to nature, encouraging readers from ages 4 to 104 to enjoy, respect and protect our precious oceans.
