Beautiful Whale: Life-size Photographs by Bryant Austin

Friday 11 April 2014 to Sunday 01 February 2015


Come eye-to-eye with whales at sea in this remarkable photographic exhibition at the Australian National Maritime Museum.

American Bryant Austin is the only photographer in the world producing life-size images of whales. Spending weeks and months with whales off Tonga, Dominica and the Great Barrier Reef, Austin remains motionless in the water, waiting for humpback, minke and sperm whales to pass less than two metres away from his lens. The results are incredibly intimate and highly detailed portraits illuminating the majesty and spectacle of whales.
