The annual migration of humpback whales from their summer feeding grounds in the Antarctic. To their winter breeding grounds in Tonga, is one of the largest and longest animal movements in the world.

I am Zola Chen, a photographer specializing in marine ecosystems. I previously worked as a multimedia designer. I learned diving and free-diving in 2010. Since then, I have been going underwater with my camera to capture wonderful ecosystems beneath the sea surface and also the diversified culture and customs on land. I have been continuously recording images of marine ecosystems whereever I go.
