Whales of Sydney is a spectacular photographic book that documents the annual migration of Humpback Whales past the coast of iconic city of Sydney from mid-May to the
beginning of December.
Showcasing not only the majestic whales but all marine life that can be see during this time, the book demonstrates the whale’s breathtaking behaviours and the interaction between them and the humans watching as well.
Sydney has one of the longest humpback whale migrations spanning almost six months and sees a large number of whales swimming past its shores with an estimated number of more than 25,000 individuals at the end of 2016, increasing by about 10% each year.
All whale photography has been captured over the past ten years by wildlife photographer Jonas Liebschner, who spends most of his days out at sea during whale watching season, trying to capture these magic moments.
