Whale Fishing

by Motoi Ichihara

Ages 8 UP

The Japanese people have been eating whales for more than 5,000 years. A photographer ventured out on the Antarctic Ocean with a fleet of whalers from December 1982 until the following February. His dynamic photographs show the process of finding, pursuing, shooting, and dismembering gigantic whales.
