Postcards of collages. The series of collages was created using leaflets advertising whale watching trips, collected whilst on a research visit to Iceland. Whale watching is an interesting trade, which although has codes of practices and often plays a part in protecting species, also creates an aura

around whales, and tourists become fascinated with a desire to capture them.


Invading natural habitats and pointing hundreds of cameras as they move through the seas. These collages subvert the typical whale watching imagery, and are displayed as postcards, to further perpetuate the notion

of a souvenir and the tourist experience. The postcards are available to take away.

Displayed as part of 'Here be Whales' 2018 exhibition, Left Bank Leeds and Hull Maritime Museum. Also featured in exhibition catalogue 'Whale Encounters'.
