Dive into the epicenter of whale culture with visual storyteller Brian Skerry to experience the extraordinary lives of whales. This visual odyssey shows us how whales are far more complex—and more like us—than we ever imagined. Cutting-edge research reveals that whales celebrate identity, joy, community and mourn the loss of those they love. Through generational learning, whale parents and grandparents teach their offspring not only the skills they need to survive, but also ancient, valued, family traditions. Blending intimate photography, motion picture and extraordinary, personal experiences, Brian helps us see the planet through a new lens.
