A Life Among Fishes explores the life long passion of fisheries scientist and artist Christopher M Dewees, featuring over 100 of the Japanese fish prints he has created since 1969. Information about the art form and it's history is presented alongside the artworks. The book presents half a century's worth of Japanese-style fish and shellfish prints in full colour, by artist, scientist, and all-around fish-enthusiast Chris Dewees. We follow his evolution, from being exposed to the fascinating gyotaku style as a graduate student, to his current status as an internationally recognised master in the field. He documents his journey and growth by sharing fifty years of experiences and adventures. In recent years Dewees has done more writing, and these stories and poems are linked to his art.
