MIAMI: Whale Shark Series by Kristian Schmidt

Two-time Grammy award-winning director, producer and photographer Kristian Schmidt brings an exclusive selection of his Whale Shark Series to Art Basel this year. Schmidt is known for his unusual projects that draw upon polar opposites, and this stunning series reflects this. Shot on location in the Philippines, Whale Shark Series highlights the phenomenal contrast between these majestic sea creatures and human beings, all the while raising awareness to the extinction of whale sharks. Following the success of his recent exhibition in New York, this exquisite showcase will be on view through Saturday at the MAPS Studio Backlot in the Wynwood Arts District. –Sarah Ryan Hecht
