World-renowned Israeli wildlife photographer Amos Nachoum is gearing up for the most challenging expedition of his career: to photograph a polar bear in his natural habitat, underwater in the Canadian Arctic. The 65-year-old Jaffa-born photographer has long been fascinated by the spectacular beauty of nature and its most striking creatures. Having communed with sharks, killer whales, crocodiles, and the like, his photographs have been featured in the world’s leading nature magazines. His expeditions have also received widespread acclaim for their attempts to dispel the myth of “dangerous” wildlife and demonstrate the joy of harmonious interactions between man and animal. Approaching his subjects with utmost respect and admiration has enabled Nachoum to achieve a rare level of intimacy and solace in his imagery, allowing for the full splendor of these animals to shine through.
