First Encounter

One of Brian Skerry’s most iconic and popular photographs, First Encounter shows the meeting of a diver and 45-foot, 70-ton Southern Right Whale on the sea floor. The picture was made in the sub-Antarctic of New Zealand on a National Geographic magazine assignment in which Brian photographed whales that had never seen humans before.

Perfect for framing or simply hanging on the wall, this high-quality poster is sized 24″x18″ and is shipped in a mailing tube.
