Reflecting the Natural World in Extreme Conditions

Paul Nicklen is a photographer, filmmaker, and marine biologist. His work is collected by film and music stars, and major celebrities, including: Katie Couric, Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Garner, Alec Baldwin, Prince Hussain Aga Kahn, and the International Photography Hall of Fame, among others. He forges a bond between subject and viewer through sensitivity and a singular eye for reflecting the natural world in extreme conditions. “I believe that art, especially photography, has the power to connect people to stories with such deep emotion, that their perspective of the world can change,” says Nicklen. “My work exists at the intersection of art, science, and conservation as a way to showcase the beauty that exists in nature.”

Cristina Mittermeier is hailed as one of the most influential conservation photographers of our time, dedicating her entire life to protecting the world's oceans. She has visited more than 100 countries, and founded The International League of Conservation Photographers. She coined the phrase conservation photography. “Images can help us understand the urgency to protect wild places that so many of us realize is of the utmost importance,” says Mittermeier. “My work is about building a greater awareness of the responsibility of what it means to be human.”


The Traveler, by Cristina Mittermeier (2020) Bahamas.

Their nonprofit SeaLegacy.org, which Nicklen and Mittermeier co-founded in 2014, has conducted over 45 global expeditions studying nearly 800 species, and has made an immeasurable impact on climate education worldwide. Both are sought-after speakers and presenters on stages from TED to National Geographic and in 2022, they each received Honorary Doctorates of Fine Arts from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada.

More About the Artists:

Paul Nicklen has documented the beauty and plight of our planet for more than twenty years. His work is collected by Hollywood icons, rock stars and royalty. In 2019, he became the youngest person inducted into the International Photography Hall of Fame. He has said it is one thing to capture the natural world in a moment of grace and dignity, but that pales in comparison to an image that shines a brighter light on the environmental crisis and drives everyday people to action, even if only in some small way. His work has been singled out for creating a unique connection between image and viewer by featuring wild subjects in some of the most extreme conditions known on Earth. He is a Sony Artisan of Imagery and aligns with Rolex's Perpetual Planet initiative on collaborative efforts to preserve the natural world. Nicklen has won more than thirty of the field's most prestigious awards, including the BBC's Wildlife Photographer of the Year, and the World Press Photo for Photojournalism. He has exhibited in galleries, museums and institutions around the world, including Hilton Asmus Contemporary (Chicago), Lyons Gallery (Australia), Galerie Gadcollection (Paris), Eisele Gallery (Cincinnati) and Fineart Oslo (Oslo).

Cristina Mittermeier was born in Mexico City in 1966. She graduated from the ITESM University in Mexico with a degree in Biochemical Engineering in Marine Sciences. She later attended the Fine Art Photography program at the Corcoran College for the Arts in Washington, D.C. She was named one of National Geographic's Adventurers of the Year in 2018. Her Photographs have been exhibited in galleries around the World, including Hilton Asmus (Chicago), the Saatchi Gallery (London), C. Parker Gallery (Greenwich), and Eisele Gallery (Cincinnati). She is currently preparing for a solo exhibition at the prestigious Gallerie d'Italia in Turino, Italy. Mittermeier’s many awards include the Smithsonian Conservation Photographer of the Year; the Humanity Content Creator Award from HIPA; the Imaging Award for Photographers Who Give Back; the Seattle Aquarium's Sylvia Earle Medal; Travel + Leisure's Global Vision Award, and was named one of the “100 Latinos Most Committed to Climate Action.” She is a World Photographic Academy member; was the first female photographer to reach one million followers on Instagram; is a Sony Artisan of Imagery; and aligns with Rolex's Perpetual Planet initiative on collaborative efforts to preserve the natural world.
