These images were co-created with our cetacean friends off the Big Island of Hawai’i. Immersed in dolphin communication and sonar frequencies, we shared the winter waters cradled in the glorious vibrations of humpback whale song, the visiting whales choosing mates and birthing the new generation.
Passing Below with Bubbles
Bubbles act as lenses mirroring the dolphin group passing below
Surfacing together to breathe, hanging in the between space where air surface meets water surface
Within the Group
The dolphins choose their distance, and with resonance the group swims close in an enfolding experience
Surfacing with Bubbles
After a playful encounter, these dolphins rise through the curtains of bubbles released below
Four spinner dolphins surface to breathe and dive in tandem
Spinner dolphins swim playfully down, light streaming through the water to the sandy bottom
A curious group of spinner dolphins swims by near the surface
Pair at Surface
Mother and young surface together to breathe, showing the thin boundary between ocean and air
Light streams through this strata of dolphins, swimming together, slowly rising to surface and breathe.
Circling Sandy Ocean Floor
Swimming off the Big Island of Hawai'i, spinner dolphins circle around a sandy ocean floor.
