Reflection

Christian Vizl’s black-and-white photographs of sea animals contained in his book Silent Kingdom: A World Beneath the Waves act as a much-needed call to action.

Vizl’s association with the oceans started in his childhood and his awe for its abundance, its fragility, and its ethereal beauty remains unabated. 

“The ocean is a world that has so many things to say, so many stories to tell, so many lessons to teach, but its voice can only be heard by our hearts,” Vizl writes.

“The images in this book are a reflection of what I hear beneath the waves.” He calls the exploration and contemplation of the beauty of the ocean the purpose of his life.
