An American Immersion An American Immersion
by Jennifer Idol

An American Immersion takes the reader to every state for a visual feast of underwater exploration. It chronicles an adventure that goes far beyond the typical resort diving most divers experience. Jennifer Idol writes that inspiration came while flying over the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010. She didn't capture the flaming wreckage, but decided instead to photograph our neglected American waters in a more positive manner. This led to her goal of becoming the first woman to dive all 50 American states. She completed her quest by driving 72,000 miles over five years. On this journey, she took more than 105,000 photos and displays their immense variety in her spectacular photo essay of underwater America.
