Polar Obsession: Photographs by Paul Nicklen

September 12, 2015 - January 31, 2016

As a young boy, Paul, a Canadian-born Arctic ecosystem specialist and marine biologist, moved to Baffin Island and spent his childhood among the Inuit people. From them he learned the love of nature, the understanding of icy ecosystems, and the survival skills that have turned him into one of the most successful wildlife and nature photographers of our generation.

As an assignment photographer Paul has produced 20 stories for the National Geographic. His work focuses on the delicate relationship between healthy ecosystems and marine wildlife and his preferred working niche are polar environments. In addition to his collaboration with National Geographic, his work has been featured in hundreds of other publications around the world and he has given public presentations in over 20 countries.

Polar Obsession is produced and traveled by the National Geographic Society.
