Description


A Life Among Fishes explores the lifelong passion of fisheries by scientist and artist Christopher M. Dewees. The book features over 100 of his Japanese fish prints since 1969. Many of these are linked to stories about the journey, and history and information about the art form are also described within. The book presents Dewees? half-century of printing fish and shellfish to full color. We follow his evolution from being exposed and fascinated to gyotaku as a graduate student to his status now as an internationally recognized master in the field. He documents his journey and growth by sharing fifty years of experiences and adventures. In recent years Dewees has focused more on writing stories and poems that are linked to his art.
