Riassunto: Photographer and writer Bill Hess shares a deeply moving portrait of a remote region, its people, and whale-hunting, one of the oldest and most sacred cultural traditions.
The Inupiat Eskimos on the north coast of Alaska have been hunting whales since the beginning of time. Their way of life has evolved around the seasonal cycle of ice and migration, and Bill Hess offers us a rare look at this difficult yet beautiful culture. His duotone photographs of the Inupiat, the harsh Arctic landscape, wildlife, and subsistence hunting are powerful, remarkable images that illustrate the importance of whaling to a people who continue to survive, and to find joy in their survival, against great odds. Gift of the Whale is a remarkable addition to the anthropological and cultural history of Alaska.
L'autore: Bill Hess lives in Wasilla, Alaska. His stories and photographs have appeared in National Geographic, GEO, Field and Stream, Los Angeles Times, Time-Life Books, and the Anchorage Daily News.
