This "baby book" by world-renowned photographer Mitsuaki Iwago is an endearing - as well as scientifically astute - chronicle of harp seal pups' first three weeks of life in the forbidding conditions of the Arctic.
These are the seal pups that continue to inspire worldwide outrage against the brutal fur trade. With their dark liquid eyes, fluffy roly-poly bodies, and long black whiskers, these baby seals are intrinsically irresistible. But Iwago combines the geometric shapes of his subjects, the delicate lines of each ridge of ice, and every trick of light to create striking designs that are works of art in themselves.
Iwago's collection of eighty-one color photographs form a unique pictorial record of the intimate details of the harp seal pup's daily life - nursing, sleeping, squabbling, nuzzling, learning to swim - set against a sweeping backdrop of snow and ice. He captures his subjects is a variety of amusing anthropomorphic poses: lolling on their backs in cradles of ice, waving their flippers as though posing for the camera, "kissing."
Harp Seal Baby Book is an inspiring and fascinating study of the development of marine mammals struggling to survive against great odds, both natural and manmade.
