In the tradition of his best-selling book, Serengeti: Natural Order on the African Plain, Mitsuaki Iwago has created a spectacular tribute to the magnificent humpback whale. Humpback whales are intelligent, graceful creatures whose complex language and social behavior remain a mystery. Famous for their beautiful, haunting songs whose purpose continues to elude scientists, the humpbacks' gentle demeanor has endeared them to nature lovers worldwide. From their powerful acrobatics to their distinct feeding technique, Mitsuaki Iwago's Whales records the boundless energy and grandeur of these giants as they swim, feed, and breach in the open ocean. Internationally renowned wildlife photographer Mitsuaki Iwago became enthralled by humpback whales almost twenty years ago. Awed by their power and grace, he began to seek out these gentle giants and record their magnificence on film. Photographing in the waters off southeastern Alaska, the Hawaiian Islands, and the Bonin Islands, Iwago has created a moving portrait of humpbacks that is as striking in its photographic technique and composition as it is in its visceral intimacy. Iwago, famous for his patience, skill, and tenacity, has spent years following and photographing the humpbacks. The images that emerge form a stunning look at one of the most majestic creatures on earth. A seminal volume, Mitsuaki Iwago's Whales is truly the most riveting and original work ever produced on the great humpback whale.
