Paul Nicklen - Pole to Pole
Whether he is ice diving among leopard seals in Antarctica, covering hundreds of miles of terrain in -40F temperatures, or mastering aerial shots from his ultralight plane, Paul Nicklen has specialized in photographing polar regions since 1995. A unique childhood among the Inuit in Canada’s Arctic and a professional background as a biologist in the Northwest Territories enable him to take on the most inhospitable places on our planet. His images reflect a reverence for the creatures inhabiting these isolated and endangered environments, and he hopes to generate global awareness about wildlife issues through his work.In his first interactive photography iPad app, Paul brings you face to face with leopard seals, emperor penguins and polar bears with behind the scenes video and eight photo galleries with over 160 photographs.
