About the Author

CHRISTIAN VIZL was born in Mexico City and has been a photographer for three decades. He has won dozens of professional photography awards, including Wildlife Photographer of the Year and International Photographer of the Year, and his images have been published in numerous publications, including National Geographic and Ocean Geographic.


"That we can, and should, revel in his photography should also remind us that the oceans are ailing, polluted with plastics and struggling with ocean acidification and warming."--National Parks Traveler
"Silent Kingdom is a breath of fresh air. The photography work is exceptional and demonstrates a master's touch. Christian Vizl shows us his unique style, and it shines in this book. The included essays are thoughtful and timely, even if we did nitpick about how they flow as part of the book. There are many images in this book that will blow you away, and those alone are worth the price of admission."--Dive Photo Guide
"Absolutely stunning, dreamlike black-and-white photography, Vizl's masterful use of light and shadow is unparalleled, capturing aquatic creatures and marine seascapes with a level of emotion and grace few, if any, have achieved before."--Field Mag
"Vizl manages to capture the elegance of life below sea level by using his keen eye for symmetry and composition."--My Modern Met
"Christian Vizl's book comes closer to inspiring [moments of transcendence]. "Silent Kingdom: A World Beneath the Waves," a collection of black-and-white photographs taken mostly in the waters off Vizl's native Mexico, offers a different kind of portraiture. What, we wonder, is the character of this sea lion; what kind of individual is this hammerhead shark; what is on the mind of this blenny? That Vizl's images prompt such questions without excessive anthropomorphism is part of his book's generosity."--New York Times Book Review
