Paul Nicklen's Polar Obsession
We're fans of photographer Paul Nicklen's Polar Obsession book at my house. So I was excited to learn he recently presented a TED Talk "Tales of ice-bound wonderlands" about his work photographing Arctic and Antarctic wildlife.
Nicklen grew up in one of the only non-Inuit families in Nunavut on northern Canada's Baffin Island. He first worked as a wildlife biologist.
Now, as a photographer for National Geographic, he documents the lives of leopard seals, whales, walruses, polar bears, bearded seals, and narwhals, from on and under the polar ice.
