In an effort to help protect whales and bring attention to conservation efforts, photographer Bryant Austin has created stunning life-size shots of the magnificent animals. His work is the result of taking hundreds of high resolution images of a whale and then piecing them together into one complete, life-size whole. From Treehugger:

Bryant Austin’s inspiration for this project began five years ago while diving in the Kingdom Of Tonga. Austin was six feet in front of a humpback whale calf when he felt a gentle tap on his shoulder — he turned to face the eye of the mother. She extended her 15-foot, one-ton pectoral fin to gently let him know that she was watching him. It was at this moment, when Austin locked eyes with the mother whale, that he realized what had been missing in the field of whale photography and conservation, an emotional connection…mammal-to-mammal, species to species.”

A short film documenting Austin’s work called In The Eye Of The Whale debuted last week at the Ocean Film Fest 2010 in San Francisco. You can check out some incredible photography of his work here and view the film below.
