Looking for whales
Hughes, Wade2019
Books
Graceful, intelligent and huge, whales cast a spell over the human species. But their thoughts and ways of life lie beyond our understanding, in an alien habitat. A few people who've dived and made their acquaintance come closer to penetrating the unknowable, biologists for example. However whales and scientists aren't given to sharing their knowledge and feelings. Wade and Robyn Hughes have spent decades looking for whales. Their photos, mostly black and white, taken underwater and above, illustrate whales being themselves in the moods and phases of life: uncontrived and revealing views in their natural realm, with text evoking the insights each close encounter produces.
