Paul Nicklen’s NarwhalsDPMag Published in Blog
This post comes courtesy of a link from the Kateoplis Tumblr page—which is a Tumblr I highly recommend if you're interested in gathering links to great photos and interesting tidbits from the art, fashion and photographic communities. She recently linked to a National Geographic story about Narwhal hunting in Arctic ice floes by Paul Nicklen. Nicklen is an amazing photographer, and this series—which is definitely a bit disturbing due to fairly graphic images of the animals hunted and butchered—is enlightening and moving. A must read for fans of the work of Mr. Nicklen, and for those who are simply concerned about the plight of the arctic and its inhabitants, both man and animal.
