About the Author

Philip Hamilton is a photographer and ocean conservationist.


"Although there are few answers and far too many questions, the strange tale of Kieran Kelly shows that human monsters can prey on their fellow man for years, and so long as the victims belong to society's class of the great unwanted, the police and the general public just will not care."
--New York Journal of Books
"A beautiful, otherworldly compendium of underwater photographs."
--GQ (12/01/2018)
"In Call of the Blue there are pin-sharp close-ups of a hawksbill turtle and a great white shark - and of a tiny xeno crab and a strange group of Lambert's worm sea cucumbers. There are also great splashes of colourful reefs and gaudy anemones, and a silvery view into the mouth of a whale shark, the largest fish in the world. Coursing through this visual warmth is an icy current: essays and interviews with scientists, photographers and "ocean guardians" - people who are devoted to protecting the oceans. Though they are clearly fascinated by all things oceanic, the stories they tell are more terrifying than any tiger shark. The waters are warming; as a result, corals are bleaching and dying, leaving creatures of all types homeless and vulnerable. We are catching too many fish and filling the oceans with plastic ... This magnificent book is [Hamilton's] call to arms. Let's hope it works."
