"Humpback Whales of the South Pacific"

Fine Art Photography Awards (FAPA) announces winners of 1st FAPA competition. 

Photographer José Javier Delgado Esteban was awarded 1 prize in Wildlife / Animals for the entry entitled Whale Nation: Humpback Whales of the South Pacific at 1st Fine Art Photography Awards competition. 

In 2015 Fine Art Photography Awards received more then 3000 submissions from 77 countries around the world. Winners were selected by highly acclaimed panel of international judges.

The Whale Nation Project started as a 100% self-funded venture where I was going be be documenting as many cetacean strandings as possible. The aim was to produce enough of a body of work for an exhibition where a combination of still and moving images will be shown. Although the genesis of the work was based on a conceptual idea, the final output will have a strong educational-driven outlook.

The production leg of the project officially started on Boxing Day 2011 when a huge 55 feet long Bull Sperm Whale stranded on a North Norfolk beach.

On the Summer of 2014 we spent some time in the South Pacific Archipelago of Vava'u in The Kingdom of Tonga or Friendly Islands as James Cook called them after visiting them extensively in his second voyage of discovery of the South Pacific.

We were documenting the migration of the Humpback whales form the cold food-rich waters of the Antarctic Ocean to the warm shallow waters of Tonga.
