Photo blogging

A fish-eye view of America. In 2002, underwater photographer Alex Kirkbride decided he wanted “an immense creative challenge.” He set out on a three-year journey across the United States, traveling over 100,000 miles to photograph underwater images from every state.

From flooded quarries and cranberry bogs to freezing Alaskan waters and Elvis's swimming pool, Alex took a unique array of photographs. The result is a collection of 150 imaginative photographs in the book American Waters, depicting the amazing variety and astonishing beauty of underwater worlds unseen by most people in their lifetime.

A description of the project by the photographer and some sample photos can be seen on Alex Kirkbride’s Web site.
