Saving 'Ocean Giants' (10 pics)

Posted in Animals   15 Jun 2010   / 6429 views

The photographer Bryant Austin is the first photographer to make life-sized high-resolution images of whales.
He takes hundreds of high-resolution pictures of a whale and then put piece to piece together to create a life-sized image. His largest photo to date is 6 feet by 28 feet. It took him 2800 hours to complete it.

It is not an easy job to make one photo, he needs to find a pod of whales, then he stays on the surface of the water waiting that one of the whales of the group approaches him first, only then Bryant starts taking photos, all on whale’s terms.

It is also a dangerous job, as the photographer is swimming only six feet away from these fifty to one hundred ton subjects. It is a very delicate process.

Bryant’s purpose is to stop whaling and to explain to people how whales are important to our oceans. He organizes his exhibitions in whaling countries, like Norway and Japan in hope that it will change the attitude towards whales.
