Selecting his most evocative and thought-provoking imagery, this BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year, top Instagram photography influencer, and speaker takes you deeply into a world he loves. Bathed in polar light, Nicklen's photography breaks new ground, offering a vivid, timely portrait of two extraordinary, endangered ecosystems.
In a wise intertwining of art and science, Nicklen's bold expeditions plunge him into freezing seas to capture it all, from sea to sky, all species and all habitats, including unprecedented, up-close documentation of the lives of leopard seals, whales, walruses, polar bears, elephant seals, penguins, and narwhals.
A captivating and important volume of fine art wildlife photography that illustrates Nicklen's vision of seeking out truth and change through his work-his foundation with Cristina Mittermeier, SeaLegacy, a non-profit environmental organization.
