Hermosa ballena // Beautiful whale (by Bryant Austin)

Bryant Austin - Beautiful Whale - 2

El impresionante proyecto fotográfico “Beautiful Whale” por el fotógrafo y conservacionista Bryant Austin es el primero de su clase: narra sus intentos valientes para acercarse a las ballenas como compañeros seres sensibles. Con imágenes íntimas de Austin – algunas tan detalladas como un único ojo inquietante – que resultan de encuentros basados ​​en la confianza mutua, esta obra captura la gracia y la inteligencia de estas magníficas criaturas. Austin pasó días sumergido, inmóvil, en las aguas de las remotas zonas de desove esperando jorobadas, esperma, y ballenas minke que le buscan.

Como oceanógrafa, Sylvia A. Earle dice en su prólogo del libro “Como embajador del océano – y al océano – Bryant Austin no sólo es una fuente de inspiración. Él es motivo de esperanza.”

Photographer and conservationist Bryant Austin’s breathtaking photographic project Beautiful Whale is the first of its kind: chronicles his fearless attempts to reach out to whales as fellow sentient beings. Featuring Austin’s intimate images–some as detailed as a single haunting eye–that result from encounters based on mutual trust, this work captures the grace and intelligence of these magnificent creatures. Austin spent days at a time submerged, motionless, in the waters of remote spawning grounds waiting for humpback, sperm, and minke whales to seek him out.

As oceanographer Sylvia A. Earle says in her foreword to the book, “As an ambassador from the ocean – and to the ocean – Bryant Austin is not only a source of inspiration. He is cause for hope.”
