Gift Of The Whale

review Gift Of The Whale Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB Photographer and writer Bill Hess shares his portrait of the remote region of Alaska its peop. This book is a milestone among recent publications on Alaska because it portrays Alaska s Native people in an unvarnished and realistic way This is NOT a commercial coffee table book or a series of pretty pictures suitable for note cards A short story hopefully will illustrate my pointWhen I was living in Barrow in the late 1980s the mayor asked me to meet with a visiting photographer who had reuested information on traditional whale hunting I was a staff anthropologist at the time The Anchorage photographer NOT Bill Hess wanted to reconstruct a whale hunt This commercial photographer pleaded to have me call him in Anchorage next time a whale was harpooned so he could catch the next plane to Barrow he had already talked the airline into sponsoring him He promised that he would stage the photograph to show the local people in the best possible light and make them appreciated by all the tourists who come to AlaskaAfter nearly throwing up I politely told him that the Inupiat whale hunters were uite capable of taking care of themselves and did not need to be airbrushed and marketed for popular consumptionThen I met Bill Hess I immediately connected with his visceral understanding of Inupiat culture which he communicates so elegantly in words and photos in this book Gift of the Whale This book communicates a vision of contemporary Inupiat life that is unvarnished and somewhat raw but from my firsthand experience authenticBill Hess knows what it s like to sweat while breaking a sled trail through jumbled ice floes at 20 below He earned his uniue chance to communicate the symbiotic relationship between Inupiat hunters and the bowhead whale This book takes the reader out onto the Arctic Ocean in both its frozen and liuid state and into the skin boats skiffs snowmachines and tents of crews who provide their families with life giving food The real stories illustrated with stunning duotone photos of the people and the animals that are simultaneously revered and killed for survival are interesting and insightful than any pseudo reality a market driven journalist could createBill Hess through his photos and stories in this book communicates how Inupiat culture continues to focus on the communal hunting and sharing of food for survival This book communicates in vivid detail how impractical contemporary Western values of individual ego driven materialism are when it s 20 below zero with the snow blowing sideways and a fellow hunter is lost on the tundra Bill illustrates how Inupiat society is built on respect and reverence for the resources and each other keys to long term survival in the Arctic This book provides a visual banuet allowing the reader to enjoy and appreciate contemporary Inupiat whaling life and culture
