‘Sharks & People’ by Thomas P. Peschak


Thomas P. Peschak’s photograph of a sea kayaker looking back at a great white shark following him is all over the Internet. Trained as a marine biologist, Peschak became a photojournalist in 2004 after realizing that his images could do more for the cause of shark conservation than his scientific research. His new book “Sharks & People: Exploring Our Relationship with the Most Feared Fish in the Sea” (University of Chicago) is a passionate report, illustrated with 150 dramatic photographs, on the state of the world’s shark population and a call for understanding the importance of sharks in the oceanic ecosystem.
