Thoughts:

Wild Seas by Thomas Peschak is truly and awe-inspiring book. The journey starts almost immediately into the ocean with beautiful double page photograph of a gray whale in Bajaj California, and it gets better.

Each photograph is accompanied by a short caption which describes it, a well as the location it was taken. The author has divided the book into categories, so you can find your favorite, or most interesting, subject.

Mr. Peschak also talks about his childhood, how his interest in photography and the sea started, as well as research and fragility of the oceans. The text is very interesting but a bit difficult to read in such a large format (around 11.1” x 12.55” according to the listing).

The book doesn’t shy away from the ugly parts of the ocean. From the way climate change is affecting the sea life, to nets and plastics which find their way to onto the animals. After seeing the majesty of the previous images, seeing how the seas are being ruined is simply infuriating.
But that’s probably the point, isn’t it?

I have been on several tours to see whales, dolphins, and other sea life. We did see many of them, but never at such clarity, I can’t imagine the time it took to get even one of these shots.

This is a big book, and quite heavy. It’s a coffee table book but a ton of fun to flip through.
