Whale Vision Exhibition in Reykjavík
The Whale Vision Exhibition premiered in Iceland’s capital with hundreds of visitors stopping by each day at the first whale conservation exhibition organized by the conservation group “Hard to Port”. My work was exhibited with some of the worlds best whale photographers to help support education and hopefully inspire others to act for our oceans and their inhabitants.
“Coming eye to eye with an intelligent being like a humpback whale can be life changing for many people. The connection you experience when you look in the eye of a 40 tonne humpback whale can evoke so many emotions. Happiness, curiosity, empathy, we look into their eyes with questions with very few answers. It is a look of understanding and acceptance. The Humpback whales of Tonga have this effect on people and the ability to touch our souls. Our oceans are vulnerable and the marine creatures that live in them face many challenges, connecting people with the ocean and its unique inhabitants is how we can protect them.”
