As one of the foremost marine photographers, Kos Evans is a woman in the danger zone. Leaping between racing yachts in rough weather; dangling out of helicopters on a harness at 100 mph; climbing 200 ft masts to get her trademark shots and diving deep beneath the surface of the ocean: her bravery in pursuit of the most dramatic images is respected throughout the photographic world.
From shooting Maxi yachts for a global Rolex advertising campaign to chasing a boat through central London for an action sequence in a Bond movie, this wonderful book captures Kos’ most dramatic photographs in a stunning and captivating collection, and offers thrilling ‘behind-the-scenes’ anecdotes of her life on the edge.
Kos Evans has been at the forefront of marine photography for 30 years and this breathtaking collection of her images is a fascinating account. From the dizzy heights of the 208 ft mast of Maltese Falcon, one of the world’s largest superyachts, to clinging on to the front of a Formula One powerboat at 80 mph, Kos displays the adventurous spirit of a stuntwoman and the imaginative eye of an artist.
Kos’ exciting career has seen her document restoration projects, photograph rock stars, witness sailing history in the making and be part of the glamorous world of movie making – it’s just another day at the office.
Kos Evans has been photographing boats and the sea since her teens. She has covered all of the major yachting events from the Olympics to the America’s Cup, the Whitbread Round the World Race to the Fastnet Race, as well as undertaking assignments for the likes of Dennis Connor, Ron Dennis, Tara Getty and Simon Le Bon. Her drive to shoot the unusual has gained her many TV interviews worldwide plus two documentaries for the BBC and ITV. She has won numerous awards for her work and has made such a name for herself that she is known worldwide simply as ‘Kos’.
