Looking for Whales premiered at Fremantle’s iconic Kidogo ArtHouse gallery on 26 October 2017 and ran until November 1. The exhibition attracted extensive media coverage, and more than 800 people came to visit the exhibition.
There are two elements to the exhibition: the prints of whales, and accompanying storyboards. In the story boards we’ve added imagery and texts to help add background and context to the behaviour illustrated in the prints.
Taken collectively, it is our hope that these two elements might just inspire you too, to go looking for whales.
Cheryl Walsh describes her work as ‘Fantastical Underwater Portraits’. In the depths of her backyard swimming pool in Southern California, she works with the quiet currents that slow down time, bring vibrancy to colors, and leave her subjects virtually weightless. Her vision, coupled with her masterful printing technique, has won her an array of accolades, including over 60 WPPI print and image competition awards.
Patricia Davidson is an award-winning outdoor photographer specializing in landscape, commercial assignments and travel photography. She has been living on the Oregon Coast in USA for over 20 years. With a background in the visual arts and web development, she sets out to produce images that express her artistic vision as well as her love of nature and the outdoors.
How would you describe your artistic style? Colorful and vivid! I am very passionate about color images. When I’m in the outdoors, the color in nature really speaks to me. On occasion I will create a black and white image because I feel it really resonates better in monotones but, for the most part, I really love color photography. When I first became interested in landscape photography, I was drawn to seascapes because I lived on the beautiful Southern Oregon Coast. Then I diversified into more different types of landscapes. I would say that flowing water is what I love to photograph the most.

Actually to call him a travel photographer is something of a misnomer, as Chris works across travel related genres such as lifestyle, adventure, wildlife and natural history with equal aplomb. The fact that all of these necessitate travel – because his clients and shoot locatons are spread all over the globe – is perhaps the strongest link. In this feature, we’ve chosen to focus on his lifestyle and adventure imagery.
