Polar Obsession is a photography exhibition featuring nearly 40 striking images of the world’s polar regions from National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen. The images take visitors underwater and across the ice, delivering a unique close-up of wildlife in the Arctic and Antarctic.
Nicklen, who regards himself as an ambassador for polar life, grew up in a small Inuit community in the Canadian Arctic. From an early age he learned how to survive in the frozen terrain and developed a passion for the wildlife around him. Today his expeditions take him to the ends of the Earth in pursuit of rare, close-up photographs of polar species, their intriguing ways and their environs. Constantly honing his understanding of wildlife behavior in order to approach the animals in their most intimate natural settings, he uses photography to dispel myths, reveal rarely seen behaviors and intensify the world’s interest in the entire polar ecosystem.
