Paul Nicklen: Animal tales from the ice wonderlands
You’ll want to watch this one, not just listen to it. The photos he has captured are amazing! Narwhals, spirit bears, polar bears, seals. His story about a leopard seal is unbelievable! But the thing that I loved most was his unmistakable love and passion for his work. He gets emotional at the end about these arctic animals. The way he talks about them reminds me of the proud parent talking about their child. And it is clear that he has defined and found a purpose and a mission in his work, and that is what I was drawn to the most; his mission and his purpose and the emotion that was tied to it.
“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
