Manufacturer Description

SOUTHERN RIGHT WHALES, NEW ZEALAND, 2007

 

Brian Skerry

 

“The picture is of two Southern Right Whales in the southern Antarctic of New Zealand, in a place called the Auckland Islands. It was one of those days when visibility wasn’t great, so I had the idea to drop down deeper and make a silhouette. This was a male and female, engaged in courtship. They were swimming together and rubbing against each other in this beautiful, dance-like way, even though they are these huge, 45-foot long creatures weighing 70 tons. I had to be very careful. Their tails could have swatted me like a fly. But they’re very aware of when anything else is in the water with them. I also had to be careful with my breathing because the bubbles would have messed the picture up. I had to hold my breath and be very careful as I moved in concert with these behemoths above me. I was all alone in icy-cold water, in a very remote corner of the world, hundreds of miles from any other human being, witnessing something very special.”
