Collector’s Edition (201–1,200), each numbered and signed by Michael Muller, with its own metal shark cage
Michael Muller has carved a career out of impressive encounters. Famed for his portraits of the world’s most elite actors, musicians, and sports stars, he has in the last decade built up one of the most spectacular portfolios of underwater shark photography. Muller’s quest is to document sharks with an unprecedented proximity and precision. In ocean depths around the world, he approaches the sharks with a patented seven-bulb, 1,200-watt plexi-encased strobe lighting rig, developed with NASA engineering, bringing the Hollywood portrait session to the ocean predator.
This Collector’s Edition of Muller’s images brings the best of his shark shots together in a stunning portfolio of adrenaline and awe. Arranged geographically, it follows Muller’s ocean adventures from black tip and sand tiger sharks in South Africa to great hammerheads in the Bahamas and the first known photograph of a great white breaching at night. Thrilling narratives from each trip document the challenges and near-misses along the way.
“[Sharks] in no way demonises the ocean’s apex predators; instead, Muller’s beautiful underwater images admire the animals’ evolutionary perfection and graceful power. Nature’s supermodels.”
