Communion with Whales – Guillaume Boeye , Éric Lamblin

49.00

Guillaume Boeye And Éric Lamblin are two snorkeling divers based in reunion. For 15 years, they have been diving together to immortalize the presence of whales off the coast of the island during the season when they breed and put down. In Communion with Whales, the most beautiful images they have gathered in the course of the dives are staged in an exceptional book.

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 for its preservation. Here, man is only an attentive observer, subjugated by their beauty and respectful of their natural environment.

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 .

It is an exceptional work, both by its subject and by its very high-end bill. Few books have been able to show so closely the whales with such a high quality of reproduction of all shades of blue. The book is a unique object, well beyond a simple book of underwater photographs. The care given to manufacturing (binding Switzerland) is indispensable to create the feeling of immersion desired by the photographers.

This project is part of a long tradition of books-tributes to the marine world, from the works of Philip Pleaten to that published late 2017 at the seeking MIDI publisher, the great history of the Sea. Christian Bucht thus gives by these words the whole issue of promoting such works: 

"Man is never as tall as in his face-to-face with the sea."  Because it is unmeasured, the sea is transcendent. » In the sea, the future of the Earth. Christian Bucht, Philip Pleaten.

 


cover 4 :

Every year during the southern winter, the "whale path" stops a few weeks near the shores of Reunion Island. For 15 years, two divers-photographers have been swimming near humpbacks.  They have gathered their finest images to bring you into a universe of grace and poetry. To contemplate so much beauty, doubt is no longer permissible: the protection of the oceans and the underwater world is a priority, so that the dance and the song of these last giants of the planet continue to move us. Will beauty save the world? This voyage of immersion in Communion with Whales invites to hope.

 


The book is supported by Island of the tourism meeting, which uses one of the photographs of the book in its current campaign of communication, "intensely fabulous".

The two photographers were invited to the news from 12:30 First meeting, a French channel • TV Info on February 15, 2009. Also discover theinterview they have given on The channel's online information website. You can also find here the article made by Dive TV.

The production of their work was enabled by a crowdfunding campaign carried out on our dedicated platform, which raised more than €22,000 thanks to more than 350 donors.
