A Canadian Born PhotoJournalist and Antarctic's Leopard Seal

leopard seal photo
Extreme Exposure," on view at the Annenberg Space for Photography
through April 17 showcases incredible nature photography—and 
honors the renowned photographers that produce them.

Presented with comments from the photographers, these 

images provide an intimate look at the natural world in stunning
 photos—and reveal insight into what it takes to capture them.

Photographer Paul Nicklen took some of the most amazing 

photographs of his life near Pleneau Island, Antarctica when
 a leopard seal decided he was clearly helpless and hungry. 
(We first broke this story in November.)

Here, a leopard seal approaches the photographer as the 

pair floats on sea ice.
