Staff Reviews


Beautiful Whale is aptly named. Photographer Bryant Austin exhibits life size composite photos of whales. They must be awe inspiring, given the reproductions in this oversize book. Between the photos and the accompanying text, the immense scope of the project is impressive. Next to a 3-foot-long foldout image of a Sperm Whale, Austin says “It took me four months to raise sufficient funding to build a computer powerful enough to complete this image – measuring ten by thirty-six feet – of Scar.” The detail is phenomenal. I would love to travel the world and encounter these whales myself, but Austin’s work is the next best thing.
