Hunting Whales

October 7, 2009

Although hunting whales is extremely offensive to animal rights activists, the website is pretty cool. The homepage is visually appealing– crisp white background with a simple photograph along with links on the side.

The Whale Hunt

Once entering, there are a few ways to view all the photos taken: a mosaic, timeline, or pinwheel. I found that the mosaic and the pinwheel were sort of overwhelming and honestly, making me a little nauseous. The timeline was the most static and easiest to navigate through. The author of this site, Jonathan Harris, took a photograph ever 5 minutes while on his whale hunting trip. Some photos are more interesting than others of course, but all in all, it was a very interesting way to document. I’m a little jealous that I didn’t think of it first.
