In the 90 images that comprise this gallery, you’ll find 88 different species up close and personal, species I’ve photographed all over the world. Many will certainly be familiar, while others — such as the absyssal gulper shark, the impossibly blue maomao from New Zealand or the (deceptively) fearsome-looking wolf herring — will be quite alien. But I find all of them appealing or compelling in their own right and hope you will as well.
