Mesmerising Portraits of Humpback Whales by Jem Cresswell

The gentle grace of the mysterious humpback whale is captured in a mesmerising new photo series.
Jem Cresswell spent three years following the marine mammals during their annual migration to Vava’a island in the Tonga to get the close-up shots.
One image shows a humpback gliding towards the camera with barnacles on its underside. Another shows a mother and calf hanging close to the surface side-by-side. Some of the aquatic giants feature scratches on their ridged skin from underwater tussles or encounters with boats.

Up close and personal: Cresswell, who is based in Sydney, told MailOnline Travel that he was ‘initially drawn to the whales’ gentle nature, sheer size and the feeling of insignificance in their presence’
