Artbound Special: Annenberg Space for Photography - Extreme Exposure
Paul Nicklen is a Canadian marine biologist and photojournalist. He has two books and numerous stories for National Geographic to his credit. As a child, he lived on Baffin Island, a large, remote area off the northern coast of Quebec. "I need to be on the front lines. I need to be where the ice meets the open water. It's isolated. It's freezing, but living with the Inuit taught me how to survive and what it took to really get close to these polar wildlife species."
Photojournalist Michael Nichols has won a number of awards for work that documents nature and wildlife across the globe. He has spent nearly 20 years working with National Geographic. In that time, he has documented environments from African jungles to the forests of Northern California. "My stuff is visceral. It's not intellectual at all. When I shoot, it's a physical response. It's my subjective truth, my interpretation, the way I frame it, the way I look at it."
Landscape photographer Clyde Butcher lives and frequently works in the Florida Everglades. He uses large-scale photographs to document the environments of the United States. He has won numerous awards, including the Ansel Adams Conservation Award from the Sierra Club. "I'm fighting wind. I'm fighting rain. I'm fighting mud. I'm fighting lightning-- now that's something to be scared of. I've had my hair stand on end. I've had lightning come out of my fingers."
Stephen James and Donna O'Meara
Stephen James and Donna O'Meara have researched and photographed active volcanoes across the globe. Their work has appeared in National Geographic. Donna authored the book "Volcano: Portrait of a World on Fire." Stephen has also written extensively on stargazing. "As long as you survive, it's exciting," Stephen James O'Meara. "It may take years to get one of our images and we may never get it again. Volcanos go by their own time," Donna O'Meara.
