THESE dazzling shots cross the line between ocean and air, revealing our planet’s rich duality. They are taken from Two Worlds: Above and below the sea, a photography book by underwater photographer David Doubilet, with essays by Kathleen F. Moran and Kathryn D. Sullivan.

Doubilet captured the hypnotic hues of a lion’s mane jellyfish (Cyanea capillata) above in Bonne Bay fjord in Gros Morne National Park on Newfoundland, Canada.

Kimbe Bay in Papua New Guinea provides a stunning environment for a father and son as they glide across the water on a fishing boat above a carpet of corals. Part of the Coral Triangle of reef systems in the Pacific Ocean, Kimbe Bay is home to around 400 species of coral.

At sunset on the atoll of Fakarava in French Polynesia, blacktip reef sharks (Carcharhinus melanopterus) scout the shallow waters of its South Pass for fish. The pass is 200 metres long and frequented by about 700 of these sharks, making it the highest concentration of blacktips anywhere in the world.

Finally, a grounded iceberg off the shore of Devon Island – the world’s largest uninhabited island, thanks to its desert-like climate and rocky terrain – makes for a striking, if fleeting, sight in Nunavut, Canada.

Two Worlds: Above and below the sea is published by Phaidon.
