Nicklen—who grew up in a small Inuit community in the Canadian Arctic—considers
himself an "ambassador for polar life." In his Polar Obsession, the
underwater-photograph specialist captures spectacular images of narwhals,
seabirds, penguins, and seals, as well as the expected polar bears.
Accompanying Nicklen's gorgeous photos are his accounts of these creatures'
habits and habitats, the ways climate change threatens them, and what it's like
to move among such fierce and fragile animals.
