This unique collection of ocean photography and haiku poetry
celebrates the sea.
Like a photograph, a haiku poem seeks to capture a single
moment in time.

In this beautifully produced book, 17 striking ocean photographs by multi-award-winning Australian photographer, Kian Bates, have each inspired 17 powerful haiku poems by award-winning Australian writer, Dannika Patterson.
Together, this unique pairing of photography and poetry has produced the perfct gift book for ocean-lovers, displaying both style and substance.

More than a stunning coffee table book, Kian and Dannika hope that SeaSpray17 will help to connect families to nature, encouraging readers from ages 6 to 106 to enjoy, respect and protect our precious oceans.
