At the beginning of 2014 our beloved FLIPP Merman Jem Cresswell swam with a humpback whale for the first time. The experience soon led to a photographic project that would span the next 5 years and generate over 11,000 photographs. Giants is a rare window into the realm of the humpback.
Cresswell portrays the nuanced interactions between these sentient creatures with great finesse and clarity, intimately capturing in detail the deep emotional connections humpbacks carry for one another. Giants is a triumphant elucidation of behaviours we share with the whales, and how these behaviours mirror one another in ways that can make us reconsider our relationship with the world around us.
