Paul Nicklen has the unique ability to capture profound and inspiring images of some of the most elusive creatures on earth. His passion for the Polar Regions and his reverence for their inhabitants is palpable in his photographs. The impact of his work has caught the attention of a myriad of publications across the world.
Nicklen will go to extreme lengths to take the best possible image, he’ll traverse hundreds of miles in minus 40°Ctemperatures, ice dive with leopard seals and board ultra light aircrafts - all in the name of conservation and awareness.
"I call myself an interpreter and a translator,” says Nicklen. “I translate what the scientists are telling me. If we lose ice, we stand to lose an entire ecosystem. I hope we can realize through my photography how interconnected these species are to ice. It just takes one image to get someone’s attention."
Nicklen’s beautiful images have him won over 20 international photography awards, including five from World Press Story, They have also resulted in a number of important media appearances that have greatly contributed to raising awareness for his cause.
But his photographs don’t only inspire conservationists the world over; they also inspire travellers.
“If someone asked me, who has inspired me most to travel to Antarctica, I would say Paul Nicklen. Paul’s images of Antarctic and Arctic wildlife are stunning, and his stories of how he got the pictures are funny, scary, fascinating and very entertaining.”
