Communion with Whales - International Edition - Guillaume Boeye, Éric Lamblin

$54

It is an exceptional work, both by its subject and by its very high quality. Few books have been able to show whales so closely with such quality reproduction of all shades of blue.The book is a unique object, far beyond a simple book of underwater photographs. We took great care in the making of this book, choosing a Swiss binding, which helps to reinforce the feeling of immersion and thus respect the wishes of the photographers Éric Lamblin and Guillaume Boeye.

This book is a total immersion in their world, in addition to 60 images that decline all shades of blue and show us the incredible spectacle of their choreographies so light, so expressive. It is prefaced by Laurent Ballesta .

Description

Guillaume Boeye and Éric Lamblin are two free-diving divers based in Reunion Island. For the past 15 years, they have been diving together to capture the presence of whales off the coast of the Island during the breeding and calving season. In the privacy of the whales puts in an exceptional book the most beautiful images that they have gathered over the course of the dives.

True aquatic dancers, they move us by their tender gestures of protection. They also embody, despite their imposing size, the fragility of an underwater world to be protected. Sublimated by their grace, this space is always threatened by man, despite the measures taken to preserve it. Here, man is only an attentive observer, subjugated by their beauty and respectful of their natural environment.

This project is part of a long tradition of books-tributes to the marine world, from the works of Philip Plisson to that published at the end of 2017 in search of noon publisher, La Grande Histoire de la mer. With these words, Christian Buchet gives the whole issue of promoting such works:

“Man is never as great as in his face-to-face with the sea.Because it is excessive, the sea is transcendent.inThe Sea, Future of the Land. Christian Buchet, Philip Plisson.

 

 


Back cover :

Each year during the southern winter, the “Whale Trail” stops a few weeks off the coast of Réunion Island. For the past 15 years, two photo divers have been swimming near humpback whales. They have gathered their most beautiful images to bring you into a universe of grace and poetry. To contemplate so much beauty, doubt is no longer allowed: the protection of the oceans and the underwater world is a priority, so that the dance and song of these last giants of the planet endure and continue to move us. Will beauty save the world? This journey immersed in the intimacy of whales invites hope.
