Evoking the classic dive books popularized by Jacques-Yves Cousteau, this limited-edition publication follows the underwater expedition that accompanied Damien Hirst’s latest project, ‘Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable’ (on display at Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana, Venice until December 2017). Shot in the Indian Ocean over a number of years, the extraordinary underwater images of the artworks’ recovery were photographed by Christoph Gerigk, who has twice been awarded the World Press Photo Foundation’s prize for international photojournalism for his work on Egypt’s sunken cities. Also featured are photographs of the above-water operation by Steve Russell Studios. Signed by the artist and numbered in an edition of 1000, the publication includes 128 full colour images, 94 of which are double-page spreads. The book’s pages feature a die-cut hole and gold-edged paper.
