New York, NY - National Geographic is renowned for powerful, evocative images of the natural wonders across the globe and Paul Nicklen, 48,  has dedicated 20 years to his craft. Nicklen is responsible for almost every polar bear and penguin photo gracing the glossy pages, but his work extends beyond the page and looks to advance conservation.

Nicklen opened his namesake gallery nearly a year ago with a mission to raise money and highlight awareness of a variety of conservation-minded issues. The Paul Nicklen Art Gallery in Soho features work from Nicklen and also rotate in on six week runs other artists featured in half the gallery space with their own unique conservation message. 

"Nothing in life feels as good as hanging your heart on the wall to be big and beautiful," Nicklen said of his passion project. "Ultimately, I want people to care. I want to break down the walls of apathy."

The elusive Canadian normally resides in British Columbia or out in the field...generally somewhere cold wet, and deadly.  Capturing the provocative and mesmerizing images without running afoul of the beautiful, albeit lethal, animals is a feat unto itself, but carrying his mission further to preserve that majesty for future generations through conservation is a true look through the lens of this unparalleled artist. 

Nicklen is the co-founder and director of Sea Legacy; a non-profit conservation organization who's mission is to "create powerful media to change the narrative around our world’s oceans. Our mission is to inspire the global community to protect our oceans." Through a group of photographers, filmmakers and storytellers Sea Legacy seeks to share the plight of the oceans. "This is the story that sparks a global conversation, and the story that inspires people to act. We believe that producing powerful media and art that gives people hope is imperative. Hope is empowerment. Hope is a solution. Hope is a game changer."

Paul Nicklen will be visiting the gallery this weekend, and hosting a special event on Saturday March 3rd at 3 PM.  This event will feature a discussion of some of his favorite prints on display, and he will discuss the future of Sea Legacy and environmental advocacy, while giving backstories, insights, and more on his work.

Check out Nicklen's gallery for more details.

Additional information on Sea Legacy can be found here.
